Separate LMDE Editions of Cinnamon/Mate?

Post by Uncle Spellbinder »

Will there be Separate LMDE Editions of Cinnamon/Mate?

I really have no interest in MATE at all. I'd prefer to have a pure Cinnamon install of LMDE. Is this in the cards?

You can just uninstall MATE by yourself...
Not so complicated !!

something like :
sudo apt-get remove mate-core mate-desktop-environment
sudo apt-get autoremove

Yes, I know. I just don't want to attempt in case anything is removed that may be necessary.

Bottom line, a pure MATE or pure Cinnamon desktop install will more than likely perform better than a merging of both into one distro.

I was just curious if this was being considered.
