[Bug 682788] Re: Improve Unity menus


I'm really confused. LIM and those two mockups have NOTHING to do with
how the global menu behaves or the original description of the Enhanced
Menu project (described in the "Desired change" section of the
description).  How is it a solution to the VERY SERIOUS ISSUE  that the
global menu hides, making it hard to understand and use? (Three hours on
the phone with my very old mum yesterday, trying to make her understand
that there was a menu at the top and that he had to go up there to close
the window too).

LIM and other integrated menus tackle a completely different issue, that
is PART of the problem (menus global or not) but not the other part of
the problem (global menu hidden or a la OS X).

Shuttleworth (and if I'm not mistaken John Lea as well) were describing
a solution that included a permanently visible menu many months ago.
What happened to that? Will the only solution be the Unity-Revamped
third party collection of patches? (Thanks Isaac!!!!)

Please Mr. Lea or Mr. Shuttleworth, be so kind to chime in and clear
this up. I just don't understand the silence.
