Linux Mint 15 Olivia MATE - Not as refined

Filed under

Here's the third review of the Linux Mint Olivia family. So far, Olivia has shown really awesome results, near perfect in almost every sense of the way. Let's see what the MATE version can do.

The last time I tested MATE, I did an in-vivo installation on top of an existing Cinnamon installation, and this kind of robbed the environment of some of its spicier details. Therefore, for this round, we will do a proper test, starting with the live session and a separate installation. We will be using the T61 laptop for this review.

Now, follow me.
