The MATE Desktop or the MATE Desktop Environment is the continuation or extension of GNOME 2. It gives a beautiful and intuitive desktop environment with the use of native metaphors that runs on Linux and other UNIX-like operating systems. The MATE Desktop Environment is under dynamic development to be able to add support for new technologies whilst maintaining the native desktop experience.

MATE Desktop Environment can be installed using the official repositories for the following Linux distributions: Arch Linux, Gentoo, Debian, Fedora, openSUSE, Linux Mint, Sabayon, Mageia, PCLinuxOS, PLD Linux, Point Linux, Salix, and Ubuntu. MATE Desktop Environment is also available to Slackware, GhostBSD, FreeBSD, and PC-BSD through the unofficial repositories but it is also planned that they be included in their official repositories.

The MATE Desktop Environment consists of several applications and the renaming is required to prevent issues with the GNOME components. The official file manager for MATE Desktop is Caja. It lets the user preview files and open the applications associated with them and browse directories. Caja is a fork of Nautilus and is also responsible for managing the icons on the desktop.
