Re: Linux for me now - Don't confuse or prejudice new users...

Really what would the point of a Canonical (Ubuntu MATE), be exactly? Probably a few wasted cycles, plus storage, and transport costs -negligible- but, still costs. When Mint MATE already IS the defacto MATE Ubuntu... *cough* Debian *cough* Package OS. I mean are they [Canonical], gonna start proactively preventing Mint from accessing its apt-get repos, or something?!
