Cinnamon and MATE desktop environments are both available in the Ubuntu repositories.

To install Cinnamon:
Code:
sudo apt-get install cinnamon-desktop-environment

To install MATE:
Code:
sudo apt-get install mate-desktop-environment

If you are using Unity, there's a package with some nice badges for the new desktops for the Greeter screen (where you log in):
Code:
sudo apt-get install unity-greeter-badges

Ubuntu MATE is now one of the official flavours of Ubuntu:
https://ubuntu-mate.org/
Unofficial downloads of Ubuntu MATE 14.10 and 14.04 LTS are available.

To install MATE on an existing 14.04 installation, see instructions in the MATE for Trusty PPA.
Installing MATE on an existing 14.10 installation should be the same as for 15.04, but follow Enabling Indicators in Ubuntu MATE 14.10 and 15.04.

Thanks for the links to your website.

You don't have the Ubuntu MATE ISOs though.

I updated the links to now include Ubuntu Mate 14.04.2 LTS and 14.10 in both 32bit and 64bit versions. Thanks for heads-up.

I have come to like Unity. But this is a good move.
