What kind of light do you need?
Mate has its own website and forums. Information is at https://ubuntu-mate.org/ and https://ubuntu-mate.org/raspberry-pi/

Not sure what light there is to shed. I installed Ubuntu Mate on a Pi 3B following whatever instructions there were and I recall it worked okay and as expected as far as I used it. Then I decided Raspbian was better for me and went back to that.

Get a second SD Card, install Ubuntu Mate on that, boot it up, see if you like it. If you do; great. If not it's a simple swap of cards back to what you currently have.

One big positive of the Pi using SD Cards is it makes it unbelievably easy to try something and back out of that.

Another day, another question...

Ubuntu Community Releases have been around since the launch of the RPi 2B and as above stated have their own support:

My other Computer is an Asus CS10 ChromeBit running Chrome Operating System.
HP Envy 4500 Wireless Printer supported by HPLIP software in Raspbian Buster.
