May 2016 PLUG Meeting: Ubuntu Mate 16.04

This coming Monday...

Ubuntu Mate 16.04

Jason Wallwork will present the newly minted Ubuntu Mate 2016.04, a popular Ubuntu spin-off suitable for older computers or performance snobs. It features the solid Mate desktop with the traditional GNOME look, cool setup tools and the elegant Software Boutique showcasing best-of-the-breed software. You don't want to miss it.

Rumour also has it that the Raspberry 3 might make an appearance. Or not. You'll have to come to find out.

We'll also be giving away a book as a door prize at the meeting.
