1.0 Maybe I completely misunderstood. Quoted from your first post in this thread:

Could you explain simply what this means. Sometime my knowledge of Shakespeare tongue misleads me?
I understood that with porteus fat gnome 3.8.4, there would be a mate option as to the design of the DE. Did I completely misunderstood? Will mate be superceded by fat gnome as a desktop on porteus os?
2.0 After googling I might have sorted it out a little bit on my own. But some answer would be nonetheless appreciated, as there are many levels in that question of mine. So here is an additional question. Will it be possible to build easily cinamon on top of gnome 3.8.4? See:

3.0 Working with fat gnome permits to have a better idea of the beast. It really looks good under porteus. This is a different interface from what I have been used yet. Maybe before asking questions I should tackle the beast a little more. As I understood, brokenman, you have other priorities, the first one being integrating the new Slackware repository to porteus. So I am going to start a general post on FAT gnome-3.8.4 so to permit exchanging between users knowledge on the interface and the functioning of its basic applications.
A few questions here if you may.
3.1 Is there a way to bootup directly into root mode without having to pass thru the guest account. (my login=root cheatcode in the menu.lst instructions does not seem to work).
3.2 system-config-printer doesn't seem to figure into the menu (I have loaded the printer pack). I had to trigger it from command line using the system-config-printer command.
3.3 Where is the bundle fetcher in the menu?
[quoteI have included an application called 'bundles' where you can download packages that were stripped from the original gnome and I will update this list with time.][/quote]
Brokenman, thanks for delivering such a nice DE. It could be called the christmas gift.
