I am someone who is not a fanboy of any operating system. Have spent a lot of time on Windows, OSX as well as GNU/Linux and FreeBSD. I am looking for a desktop environment on GNU/Linux that features two things I have grown fond of after working on OSX:
a) A Global-menu b) Alt+~ or some shortcut to switch between windows of the same application.
The old Gnome and KDE3 had these features (you had to install a package or two, but hey, it was at least possible). However, their modern iterations seem to have dropped support for them. Is there any modern desktop environment that has these two things other than Ubuntu Unity which I find difficult to use?
Please don't resort to asking me to change the way I work. Please don't tell me why global-menu is bad or is bad interface design or some such thing. I am weary of listening to such answers.
