Gnome In the GNOME bugzilla, there is an ongoing discussion about whether or not to include a patch into the default GNOME installation which would enable GNOME to (optionally) have a global application menubar, similar to that of the Mac OS and KDE (in the latter it is optional and off by default). Installation instructions and .deb packages, as well as a 60-page (and counting) discussion of the patch, are available on the UbuntuForums. Read on for a poll on this issue.

i literally hate the top menubar concept. it's counter-intuitive. something that belongs to an application must be part of the application window.

and anyway, it "cant" work on X because it would require all toolkits to support it. it would be a major usability problem to have have applications supporting it and applications not supporting it at the same time.

2 words: bad idea. and like the first guy said, people are requesting it because osx has it. show me usability studies first...
