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 like scrolling idea, implemented in bbnote (notepad for black box). Scrollbar is not a bar, it is small rectangle in the client area over the text. It does not need to take entire column. It could be even transparent.

I think that's why trackpads are so successful these days, they have their own mini-scrollbar that follow Fitt's law (throw finger to the right-most or bottom-most edge) ;)
