Distros are reluctant to include them as they're still based on obsolete software (last time I checked, MATE still depends on gtk2 and bonobo?).
    Totally True... I think that MATE and Trinity would get a huge boost if they provide something more to them. By more i mean functionality (not eye-candy) improved performance, maybe even compatibility layers with the current GNOME Shell and Unity Shell (Unity2d shell) as 2d is practically the same with lower resource usage. Even as you said upgrading the software to the latest i reckon would help.

    My Mate Desktop in Antix

    I run Fluxbox though with LXpanels as the default in my ~/.xinitrc file with Slim Login Manager.

    Well now we know what your hobbies are - I thought this thread was about desktops without such an emphasis on eye-candy.

    I think my wife is going mad - she took a look at those and said they were pictures of motorbikes. I stared at them for ages, but I couldn't see any. I think I need to print those pictures out A3 size and study them closely.

    There were bikes there... took me a few views to notice that they are the same one.



    ...I think.

    It's all the same (even the females), just different positions (gee that doesn't come of like a sexual innuendo at all!)

    I guess I SHOULD HAVE MENTIONED my Antix Motorcycle Cycle shop Desktop. The wife has no say when it comes to how I run my shop.

    No need to mention it...
    Trust me when I say that we noticed it on our own!
