Thanks, I didn't think of Nadia as an unstable release, will try to install Maya instead.

I will try that as soon as I can, but I need the command for reinstalling MATE.

The thing is, I'm installing the Mint OS on people's PC that has gone bad and/or slow. The people I am atm fixing PC for, had Vista, that would say a lot of driver and application problems and therefore did not use the PC much at all.
I started suggesting they could upgrade to win8 OR try out linux Mint. I know they're very different platforms, but when the only thing you're doing is browsing the internet, using Libreoffice, printing and sometimes playing some games, I find Linux to be much much simpler than windows (the software manager), and free. They chose to try out linux and keep the Vista-key just in case.
