THANK YOU for Ubuntu MATE

Hi everybody! I just wanted to say "Thank you" to all of you and of course to @Wimpy for this awesome OS. I installed it on an old 27", 2011 iMac and it's just amazing how it works and how it revitalized this old, but still nice machine. My computer flies now and I absolutely don't feel its age at all. Despite everything that was said about the Firefox snap in 22.04, I would also thank Mozilla and the snap team at Canonical for the massive improvements in the last release. It now feels snappy and absolutely well integrated with the rest of the system (I wish we had a global menu option, but nothing's perfect!). So thank you for the bottom of my heart for Ubuntu MATE and for giving us such a beautiful and well made distro!

I also found Firefox snap to be quite zippy. It is now my default browser. Been on Ubuntu MATE about a month - loads better than regular Ubuntu -- fast and nimble and way better use of resources
