Install the linux mint menu in ubuntu hardy
Some people don’t like the gnome menu Ubuntu uses.
Ubuntu wouldn’t be linux if there weren’t a million and one other menus out there.
One of the better ones is USP (ubuntu system panel).
It’s the same kind of panel linux mint uses.
Installation notes (some copy paste work) are found here.

I was temped to replace the gnome menu with this one but I’m living together with my brother and he would panic if he saw something new.
But I definitely suggest you try this one, after all it’s just a applet (meaning it’s easy to revert back to the standard menu).
