Yes, it was much easier having MATE in the Ubuntu repositories.

I have not tried the Ubuntu Mate distro, since it is easier just to add MATE to my Ubuntu install, and the fact that I do not need to install a different distro every time I want an upgrade - like Linux Mint with MATE makes me do. It takes a bit of time to rebuild the systems after changing/upgrading from one distro version to anouther, with all of the packages to be reinstalled and all of the .config files to update to my needs - i.e. Thunderbird's email settings and such, Firefox's bookmarks and specific saved passwords, Filezilla's site management config files, etc., etc.. I do not even want to think about what I need to do to get one of my printers to work properly on Ubuntu 14.x and newer, since 14.04, it no longer supports the needed drivers that control the color output of graphics.

In the past month, I have switched out 2 systems from Linux Mint to Ubuntu 14.04 [or better] and have two more to convert, while doing the much longer process to keep the printers working properly [i.e. install 13.10 first and install the printers, then upgrade to 14.04, and then do the upgrade cycle to 15.04/10 if wanted].

Hi Tim and all:

        Thank you for this information about LibreOffice. By the way, as I know
this is the link to Ubuntu Mate:

        And if you want you can install Ubuntu with Unity but installing Mate
desktop from its repositories (At least I did with Ubuntu 15.04 in one
of my systems)

I saw the article today, but had not checked if it came out yet.

I use the MATE desktop instead of Ubuntu's Unity desktop, or even the
newish Ubuntu GNOME distro.

I think there is a Ubuntu MATE distro out somewhere.

Yes, that's correct. Ubuntu 15.10 and all its flavors (Xubuntu,
Kubuntu, and so on) came out yesterday and the Werewolf features LO .

Typing this on an Ubuntu 15.10 machine with the nice LO
sitting in the system tray.

If anyone is interested. . . .

Ubuntu 15.10, a.k.a. " Wily Werewolf " is scheduled to come out this
according to an article.

The same article has a picture of a LibreOffice "splash screen",
showing that
this distro will include LibreOffice

I run 14.04LTS and 15.04, so on the 15.04 system, I should be
upgrading it in
a few weeks.  I have not upgraded that system's LO beyond,
another system has currently installed.
[I run Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and/or Windows 10 on my various systems]
