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.

Quick example: try to move all the functions OpenOffice has on the toolbar rather than in the menubar. It will fill up half of the damn screen.


That's why Office 2007 uses a ribbon.

Maybe that's the direction Gnome should take for apps with many functions.
