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.

[i]it's counter-intuitive. something that belongs to an application must be part of the application window. [i]

"It's [counter-]intuitive" is just a fancy way of winning an argument by making a supposedly irrefutable point that "I'm [not] used to it" = "that's [not] the way it should be done".

I learnt GUI's on the Amiga, which had a menu bar at the top of the screen accessed by pressing a menu button. So coming to Windows/Linux was weird, because menus are (usually) at the top of the window. Not only is that "counter-intuitive" afaiac, but it also wastes space.
