MATE (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈmate]) is a desktop environment forked from the now-unmaintained code base of GNOME 2. The name derives from yerba mate, a species of holly native to subtropical South America used to prepare a beverage called mate.
Several GNOME applications have been forked and renamed:
- Caja – File manager (from Nautilus)
- Pluma – Text editor (from Gedit)
- Eye of MATE – Image viewer (from Eye of GNOME)
- Atril – Document Viewer (from Evince)
- Engrampa – Compression tool (from File Roller)
- MATE Terminal – Terminal emulator (from GNOME Terminal)
- Marco – Window manager (from Metacity)
