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 have a hard time believing that. It doesn't take into account that menubars for not active windows are hidden and require bringing them "up" which in reality places mouse about 10 pixels from place where classic menubar would be. If the app is not taking the whole screen the distance between area that you operate on and menu is quite big and grows annoying if you have to access it frequently. At least that's my impression after using OSX.
