The MATE Desktop provides an intuitive and attractive classic desktop experience for openSUSE users. The name MATE comes from yerba maté, a species of holly native from subtropical South America. Its leaves contain caffeine and are used to make infusions and a beverage called maté.

For more information, you can check MATE Desktop official web page.

The MATE Desktop is maintained on OBS in X11:MATE:Factory and provides a rolling release repository in X11:MATE. The first official community release was MATE 1.6.
