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.

Focus follows mouse

Well, I wouldn't care if it were an option. To each their own.

But I don't see how this would work without breaking focus-follows-mouse. Another window will often get focus as you move the mouse up to the top menu bar and now it will be the window that the menu bar is for and not the one you intended.

Does OSX have focus follows mouse? I remember someone complaining once about not having it. Maybe this is why.
