MATE Desktop and Components

Originally released 2 November 2014


My first artwork submission!

I was a bit curious of odd names that was chosen for programs in MATE Desktop Environment, like why text editor has to be named Pluma, and why the file manager has to be named Caja? Later, I learned from this helpful Wikipedia page that those names are Spanish. The article also conveniently listed English meaning for each of them.

One day, I though up some weird idea to draw these programs by their name's meaning. And the result is this drawing.

From left to right, back to front:

I omitted Mozo (servant) the program menu editor, because I'm not good at drawing people yet. As you might see, I'm not very experienced in vector graphics, and this is the first time I try to draw as many object as this in one frame.

Dedicated to MATE project founders; Perberos, Stefano K., Steve Z., and Clement L., who stepped up to maintain the traditional GNOME2 Desktop I know and love.
