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.

Because menu-bar usage is common. Instead of carefully aligning a cursor where it goes, you can just flick it upward.

thats to hit the bar in general...

but then you have to find the specific menu you want, and the entry in said menu.

keyboard shortcuts for the win ;)

How would that work if you have an app open on monitor 2, and the global menubar starts on monitor 1? Going straight up doesn't hit anything but empty space. ;)
