Why Is It That When You Install Mate On Ubuntu, It Is Different From The Mate Default On Linux Mint?

Probably because Linux Mint has the Mint Menu (created for Linux Mint to begin with).
At any rate, Linux Mint is fully compatible Ubuntu.
That being said, when Steam comes out for Ubuntu, all one needs to do is add the repository, and install the Steam Client, or simply download the Ubuntu (deb) package and install that way.

I am relatively sure that steam will become prepackaged for other distros by the distributors. ...

Do I Need A License For Software Repairing?

You don't repair software. It's blatantly written on the warranty card that came in the box with the installer. You can be held criminally liable if you insist on doing so.

Removing viruses is just a service and does not constitute software repair. Reinstalling would need the software's license key which the owner should supply to you. Uninstalling software using a license key which was not bought constitutes software piracy.

Do Linux Machines Get Virueses?

Taken From WHY LINUX IS BETTER http://www.whylinuxisbetter.net/

Forget about viruses

If your computer shuts itself down without asking you, if strange windows with text you don't understand and all kinds of advertisements appear when you don't ask for them, if emails get sent to all your contacts without your knowing it, then your computer probably has a virus. The main reason for this is because it runs Windows.

Could U Plz Explain Me How System Boots?

A computer ( mac, windows, linux atc.) got a component at the motherbord called the "BIOS" (Basic Input Output System) Which is always on with a little battery, remembering time and special settings, and responsible for the system start.

Constant Blue Screen Of Death.....?

I'm playing around with an old laptop, it's around ten years old. It has windows XP on it.

The thing will not load, at all. I get the blue-screen of death EVERY time, the furthest it gets is the first windows boot screen (once or twice I've got it to load in safe mode, but that quickly dies too).

I have tried installing Linux on it, but it won't work. There's ...
