Linux Mint 17.3 MATE screenshots

After a 3-day delay due to website-related issues, the Linux Mint development ream has finally made the official announcement – Linux Mint 17.3 has been released for you to download, use and enjoy.

Linux Mint 17.3 MATE ships with the very latest edition of the MATE desktop, and that’s MATE 1.12, which was released on November 5 (2015). Figure 1 shows the login screen. Like the Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon login screen, it features a slideshow of different backgrounds.

As far as desktop environments go, the MATE desktop is very boring, but you can spice it up with Cairo-Dock
