it already is implemented ... I can't see why people call it the start
menu though .. it's just a menu ... if it was a popup on root it would
most likely take some serious cooperation with the windowmanager ...

plust noone is taking that away ... the window manager could just read
gnome menus and you'd have it both on the panel and on root menu ..
and you can always remove the menu applet

I would like to know what sounds like an MS product? ... as far as I know
most gnome guys either don't know or don't really enjoy windows look/feel
... (except for miguel who seems to be obsessed with excel:) ... I don't
even know how to use win95 ... (well I can shut it down to get a lilo
prompt on some of our workstations, but that's about where my win95
knowledge ends)
