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.

Applet?

Wouldn't it be better to introduce this as an applet that could be added to the existing gnome menu bars? It could simply build off the existing GNOME infrastructure and perhaps, use some standard KDE-GNOME "free-desktop" standard for menu-bars at the top of the screen...
