Congrats to the Ubuntu MATE Team!It looks like their 15.04 release will the first as an Offical Ubuntu flavor. People who are looking for more a traditional desktop look on Linux should check out Ubuntu MATE. I posted a previous video by Luigi showing Ubuntu MATE on PowerPC. So if you have a G4 or G5 there is a PPC ISO you can grab and install.

  1. I'm still confused wich linux is best. I have windows 7 installed on my lenovo g40-30 and I want linux as other system behind win7. But wich distro is best for networking, disk/partitioning, and everything is windows can't done.. thanks... ridwantask@gmail.com

  2. I would say start with Ubuntu or Ubuntu-MATE. You can actually boot them from CD so you can try them out before installing.
