Gnome A very, very long time ago I personally advocated the inclusion of a certain feature into GNOME. We set up a poll at OSNews, which resulted in a very, very resounding "yes!" from the OSNews community - many of which are GNOME users. The feature in question was the global application menubar, which allowed the GNOME desktop to have a menu bar atop the screen similar to that of Mac OS X. The poll is long gone, the debate thread in the Bugzilla has died out, and no decision has yet been made. I wanted to know where this feature stands, and how much the developers have improved it, and I was in for a surprise.

Or, as so stated by the late George Carlin:
What's so great about sliced bread? You got a knife, you got a loaf of bread... slice the f**king thing and get on with your life. ;) The same can apply here. You got the applet, you got the option, set it the way you want and get on with your life.

I'm finding that the real bummer about being 45 is that entirely too many people, once a part of my life, are now "late". When watching Star Trek movies, I find myself keeping a tally: "He's dead. She's dead. She's dead. He's dead."

It's disturbing.

Bones, Scotty, Khan

Thats 3, is there any I missed ?

I understand what you mean in your post, however, sometimes I find it strange when I find out some people who are still alive

Jack Klugman (Quincy), Jerry Lewis, Kirk Douglas, Norman Wisdom, Cliff Richard, the list goes on, so to speak
