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.

Why, why not, and who cares?

Why? If it can be done and someone wants to do it, then it should be done. Why not? Zealous defenders of the status quo object. Who cares? Apparently a lot of people who apparently desire to deny their fellow GNOME users a choice. Choice is good. Choices for UI options are good. If GNOME ever denies me the option of having my menu bars attached to the windows with which they are associated, well, there are a lot of other quite usable DEs out there. Until that time, I'm just going to sit back and watch the flamewar.
