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.

Uh, the word your looking for is "anecdotal".

Anecdote is what you use when you don't have a good empirical rule. Empirical rules are, in turn, what you use when you don't have a good theory.

Since we have a good empirical rule in this case, excuse me if I'm not readily willing to abandon it in favor of anecdote...
