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.

Add it in! It's off by default. And some people like it, especially those coming from the Mac platform.

Plus, if applications are designed to handle having their menu bars in both locations, then GTK2 apps ported to the Mac should fit in better.
