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 use this feature in kde since it became more or less stable ;)

at first its a little weird , but then you cant live without it

first , it saves screen space

then it makes app windows more simple ( you know , the gnomies that are always zealoting that kde is too complicated and gnome is so simple ... )

third , you then know where every menu bar is ... you want to access the file menu , you know it is in the top left corner ( for example )

of course , there are other advantages ( like for example if you have a very long menu , because the menu is on the top of the screen , you can the full list ) and not every app needs the menu at all ( i almost dont use it on day to day usage )
