Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu It looks like a new "locally integrated menu" will make it into Unity, starting with version 5.6.0. There's basically no information about the new locally integrated menubar, except for two bug reports which link to some custom Unity, Compiz, Metacity and Light Themes branches so to see "LIM" in action, I've compiled all these branches and here's the result. The "locally integrated menubar" can be displayed on the panel (for maximized windows) as well as in the window decoration (unmaximized windows). But it's not displayed on both in the same time.

As if developers never, ever, ever have a good sense of GUI design.

If you want someone to blame for bad GUI design... point at the head honchos of companies and organizations whose main role is advertising; those desperate for change *just to be "new" and different*, because they see dollar signs or for some reason think it'll be more "interesting" to people, not a truly better way of doing things. Those people who try to throw away everything and claim their extreme ideas of a GUI is the best thing ever. Mark Shuttleworth at Ubuntu... whoever's braindead idea was to ruin Windows... and the big GNOME guys.

I'm sorry for confusing you. I have edited out the part where I said developers never design good GUIs.
