More significantly for us, Wimpress is pretty much the only one working on Ubuntu MATE's Pi support and he can only work on that when Canonical doesnt have him doing all sorts of other things. It was a lack of his time as well as some technical issues that made the Pi3b+ ubuntu mate image take so long to get out. I am sure he would love some help. . .
No limitations it does work very well....

Sorry Paul, I misread your post, I read it as you said “I prefer Ubuntu mate but you have to build yourself” I missed the “it to”
