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.

KDE manages fairly fine with it. GNOME+this patch as well, especially taking into account this patch is done and maintained by one single guy.


True, but even in KDE it only works for other KDE (do plain QT apps work?) apps. Having GNOME and KDE interoperate in single menu bar mode would be good, but the other random toolkits will still not support it, making the UI more inconsistent across toolkits than it already is. :-(
