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.

I have had the displeasure of dealing with Vista on my grandmother's laptop, and I deal with the wondrous performance of its successor each time I play a game on mine, so I feel your pain... Works relatively fine once you put it on a recent desktop gaming machine though.

Gnome 3 is different, because contrary to Windows I'm never forced to use it. After a short experience with it in Fedora 15, I just decided that I didn't like it and would give Xfce a try and that was it. Mint's tweaks make it more bearable, too, so I may switch back someday, once I'm tired of Xfce's endless stream of glitches...

OTOH - I, and few others I know, don't see Vista (service packed Vista at least) as that different from Win7 ...maybe there's something weird / "wrong" with your grandmother's laptop (or maybe just an occurrence of how the PCs don't seem to be strictly deterministic ;p )
