I'm so glad Gnome folks rejected global menu. This is an idiotic hangover to the 80's, for some strange reason being perpetrated on Mac users to this day. Why on earth would you want to drag you mouse all the way to the top of the screen to do something with the application your mouse is already at completely escapes me. Together with that awful one button mouse on eMac, it's probably one of the worst things that Apple ever did in terms of UI. IMHO etc.
