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.

Hey Math majors, take two Eigenvalues and call me in the morning!

Seriously, I don't think the main problem is in the Linear Algebra world. The main reason this _might_ help is for newbies. They would have only one place to look for "drop-down thingies". Menus are very confusing to new computer users. I think that is a more important question than Partial Derivatives in N-Space.

However, if it is off by default, go for it! I'll never see it.
