Namib is perfect for me as a Mate DE user. This desktop is a bit neglected by my old favourite distro, Manjaro but very nicely maintained by frederic2ec, the dev of Namib Gnu/Linux.
+ Namib seems to run a bit faster than Manjaro
+ Namib is pretty close to upstream, many updates
+ 6 desktop environments to choose from: Budgie, Cinnamon, Gnome, KDE, Mate, Xfce
+ downloads from Sourceforge and OSDN
I started using Namib 1 1/2 months ago. I really like the xfce version. Found it easy to install and was a delightful surprise. Lot easier to use AUR than some of the other Arch based distrows I have
used the last 4 years. its pretty new so be patient. I think these folks are headed in the right direction for sure.
