SbK Mate-Compiz 18.1.3

I just put up for download a new unofficial spin Mate-Compiz 18.1.3.
A few days ago I announced my little project Spins by Kilz with a rather vanilla Mate spin. A friend tried it and said it needed a little "pizzazz". So I revisited Mate a little sooner than I had planned.
Like all my spins so far it has it has:

  • MS Office removed.
  • HP software removed.
  • Steam removed.
  • Snap and Flatpack removed.
  • Docks used instead of panels.
  • Dark themes.

New in this release:

  • Compiz 9 with the rotating cube for virtual desktops, faded windows in the background, wobbly windows, and other effects.
  • The dock has been modified to auto hide instead of the hide arrows. Sadly it still takes a little bit to show fully after the desktop shows.
  • A Mint X Dark (KvMintDark) Kvantum theme has been added so qt apps look a little better.
  • The non free video driver option in the boot menu is back. I recommend using it as Compiz benefits from proprietary drivers.
  • It uses about 520mb of ram for the minimal install.

    A very minimal iso as well as a more complete one are available here.

Any constructive feedback is appreciated, thanks in advance.
