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.

To me, people are obsessed with there desktop looking like OS X and no we shouldn't have this feature in GNOME. Ubuntu seem to be on a crusade to change GNOME at a fast rate, this is why Ubuntu/kubuntu becomes more buggy.

Why do I say this?, well Ubuntu people complain about GNOME being buggy when it's not GNOME, I have compiled it on slamd64 and it has no bugs like they have.

The menu bar is a direct copy off OS X, I just dont like that since already GNOME has a similar feel to OS X anyway.
