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.

Member since:

The menu bar is a direct copy off OS X, I just dont like that since already GNOME has a similar feel to OS X anyway.

I can agree with the rest you said, but this doesn't make much sense ;-)

I can see why you wouldn't use it (I tried it in KDE for some time, didn't like it at all) but then, others might. And some argue for usability reasons. So if they keep it off by default, or at least configurable, what's the problem of allowing a potential usable feature in?
