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.

Yes, touchpad can be quite difficult to work with. Personally I prefer to use the pointing stick (called TrackPoint) on my ThinkPad. I find it more accurate and pleasant to use than a touchpad... I don't have to move my hands away from the keyboard to use the mouse. I would like to have this pointing stick feature on desktop computers as well...
