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.

One other crazy idea I've had is to put a single global scrollbar on the right of the screen, so that Fitt's law is used in scrolling.

I always end up moving my windows so the scrollbar overlaps and I can throw my mouse to the right side of the screen to scroll. Much easier than picking out a thin scrollbar that doesn't hit the edge of a screen.
