Anyone got the Ubuntu MATE 14.10 amd64 ISO?

I'm gathering some old ISOs of Ubuntu MATE to preserve a bit of history, but I can't seem to acquire a copy of the amd64 build of the very first 14.10 release!

14.04 actually was the second release while Ubuntu MATE was an unofficial "remix"

Luckily, I managed to salvage 45.3% from an archived amd64 link on the Internet Archive, but it's missing the remaining 54.7%.


If you've still got a copy, please consider adding it to your Bittorrent client and seed it to spread the retro-re-retrospective past. :slight_smile: :crossed_fingers:

:x: 14.10 amd64 - ubuntu-mate-14.10-desktop-amd64.iso.torrent (77.4 KB)
:white_check_mark: 14.10 i386 - ubuntu-mate-14.10-desktop-i386.iso.torrent (78.1 KB)

Thank you to the mysterious torrent user who seeded 14.10 i386! This has been archived at https://releases.ubuntu-mate.org/archived/utopic/i386/

If you looking to use an older ubuntu mate for older pc's I suggest you use 14.04 instead since it had support until 2019 while ubuntu 14.10 was supported until 2015
I don't know of that many apps that support 14.10 and not 14.04 or 16.04

I've got 14.04 in my collection - the hunt for 14.10 is to preserve the distro's history.

Despite the release name, 14.04 (2014-11-11) was actually released after 14.10 (2014-10-23) to take advantage of Ubuntu's LTS at the time while it was a newly founded remix flavour.

Update: We have the 14.10 i386 ISO! Thank you to whoever was seeding this.

We now have a browsable directory listing for old releases of this flavour:

The amd64 build is still incomplete, as well as 15.10 PowerPC build.
