Unable to recommend Mate to friends yet :/

I run into too many problems to recommend it to friends, and that sucks. It comes to basic things like:

  • resume/suspend issues
  • working with external/mass storage
  • multi-user problems, popups appear under the wrong user
  • screen/color vagueness, windows is much sharper
  • grub menu popping up on dirty shutdown
  • no auto-recovery for 'regular' people
  • setting screen brightness

I am seriously considering reverting to 18.04 if things become worse.

That being said, I really like Mate and what it ultimately could be if these problems get resolved. But recommending it to my friends is still too early.

I reported many of them, most of them are still broken.

That's not really the point now is it ?
The how's and why's do not matter.

Basic things are broken and that's why I can't recommend it yet.
If that changes, my recommendation changes :upside_down_face:
