Cool GTK and Metacity theme to make MATE look like CDE.

GTK MATE theme: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/CDE-Solaris?content=19627. This is a lovely grey theme that themes the GTK interface to look like CDE.

The Metacity theme that completes the CDE look: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=18870. This is perfect if you want a retro looking Linux Mint 15 MATE desktop.

There are a few lovely GTK themes here: http://art.gnome.org/themes/gtk2. These themes are incredible.

BeOS GTK theme: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/BeOS?content=69. This is a GTK 1 theme. To use it with MATE, go to the ~/.themes/BeOS folder and type ln -s gtk gtk-2.0. Then the MATE Appearance dialog will let you select the theme.
