Why was the welcome center dropped?

Why was the welcome center retired? I'm just curious to know why.

I loved that welcome Screen and it saved me a lot of work installing stuff. I've had to write all the software to install programs on a piece of paper.
Is it too difficult to leave it running? I think it was the flagship of Mate

It's not good that they don't have the welcome center anymore. It's still there on linux mint-21.2-cinnamon and I use it often.

there is still the welcome center. But it's called "Ubuntu-Mate"

The welcome centre was handy when you were actually installing the distro but it was most often encountered at the start of live disk sessions, when it held things up.

This. And it would always pop up at the worst possible moment. I have cursed it countless times.

I didn't like it or use it, but it was pretty easy to shut off, one check mark.
