MATE description oddity

Postby anmys on Wed Feb 05, 2014 11:55 pm

Today I just did the following:

Code: Select all
$ apt-cache show mate-desktop-environment
Package: mate-desktop-environment
Architecture: all
Maintainer: Stefano Karapetsas <>
Installed-Size: 38
Depends: ...
Description: MATE Desktop Environment
 The MATE Desktop Environment, a non-intuitive and unattractive desktop
 for users, using traditional computing desktop metaphor.

The description looks/reads odd. Or am I reading it incorrectly? What do others feel about this?

You're reading it correctly. It is meant to be humorous.
