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.

From experience, I can tell that much worse than the extra motion is the confusion when you are trying to access some program's menu, but have another one focused. You keep looking for a menu item that isn't there, until you finally realize that you're dealing with the menu of another program.
