DBOthe application menu no longer takes up the whole screen00:15
tjagodaUnity is painful =(02:23
strangeoneI gave natty th eboot when the side bar could not make up its mind about where it belonged in regards to my application windows02:25
tjagodaI enjoy how the file menus are removed from firefox and there's no way I can add them back in even when I swap into classic gnome mode02:43
tjagodaIf they break it all we may become #linux-mint-us-mi or #debian-us-mi =P02:45
