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.

Mouse vs. Keyboard

There's something else that's important.
In Mac OS X, there's no underlined letter in the names of menus in the menu bar. Gnome does have that, and I prefer to use the keyboard (alt + [letter]) to bring up a menu.

If you don't have to use the mouse to actually go to the menubar and look around in it, the universal menu bar (position) is unimportant. Especially on laptops, I prefer not to have to use the mousepad thing at all.

Long live alt, tab, shift, and the rest. ;)
