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.

What we REALLY need is a patch to get rid of the file menu altogether and have its useful links moved to more prominent places. Not only is trying to look and act like Mac OS a really stupid and unoriginal idea, the file menu itself should be obsoleted. It's the last remnant of the 16-bit world that won't go away.
