The default menu application in Ubuntu is functional, but it is also down to earth basic. GnoMenu tries to replicate the looks and functionality of KDE's Menu application. And I have to say, it almost does. GnoMenu comes with a number of themes and a easy to use configuration menu. Looks like it deserves a try isn't it? Let's give it a shot.
What's the USP?
- GnoMenu looks pretty. Period.
- A nice looking configuration menu with a lot of options which is intuitive as well.
- GnoMenu's XML theme engine supports a wide variety of themes, even those with transparency effects.
- Latest GnoMenu 2.8 brings in a lot of improvements especially with regard to speed and usability.
- After using GnoMenu for a day, it felt really solid and fun to use. Definitely worth a try, I would say.
