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.

If it's just me

...I'd still want the menus accessible on the panel. That way the menus would always be in a fixed place, and they'd clutter the applications windows a lot less. Besides, since it would be optional and not even enabled by default, what harm would it do to anyone? Generally I don't even need menus in any of the apps I use: I customize the toolbars to suit me, and as such, the menus are more or less just a waste of space.
