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.

All I ask...

is that if this god-awful feature come to Gnome that there be a simple, obvious way to turn it off. I hated snooping around to turn off the spatial navigation _feature_. I remember when "delete" left the context menu and I had to figure out how to put it back.

OK, I admit it, I'm old. Leave my desktop alone!!

Can you read? I quote:

"as an option, *turned off by default*?"

Emphasis added.
