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.

He knows that. Assume he is asking why they like it better.

Who cares? If they like it better, isn't that reason enough?

I think having it as an optional feature that's off by default is quite reasonable - unless, you know, it breaks one of Apple's patents... ;-)

I think the question is "Why should it be default"

I think the answer is 'duh'. It should be AN OPTION BY DEFAULT

Whether or not it's enabled I have no opinion as I haven't used it...
