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.

...but I have to say that this is so Gnome-ish. If I could imagine a place where an optional new feature would cause such a large discussion and such votes, well it's Gnome. You know what ? Stick to the Gnome way: drop the whole menubar concept altogether so the many choices won't confuse the users... [yes, sarcastic, to an extent]
