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.

a very small argument in favor

I can definitely support both sides of this giant design debate, but I just wanted to point out some thing that I liked about that patch:

you can "profit" from the very, very large top panel defaulted in GNOME. That panel only has the menu-bar on the left and the notification area on the right. Putting this menu in-between makes me feel good. As if I "maximized the top panel investment ;-)

That is all.
