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 may be able to move the mouse pointer 20 times or whatever faster because I don't have to aim at a target, but come the day I can buy a new better bigger monitor and several thousand pixels of space to traverse moving the mouse just once, no matter how fast, ain't going to reach the menu bar at the top of my huge display. Factor in the time taken to move my mouse to some space on my physical desktop so that I can 'push' the pointer upwards again and I've probably added time to what I'm trying to do.


I don't really know how it is in Linux land, but the faster I move my mouse in MOSX, the further distance it travels... It takes barely any mouse movement at all to get to the menu.

Same on linux, and you can configure initial speed and how many acceleration you want, too.
