This is odd, because in my experience it does work on Linux fine. Except
under one circumstance, if it's a Linux running under VirtualBox there's
virtual box bug that stops it :(

Can you confirm this, or if not please provide info on which Linux distro
you're running under?

I'm also a bit confused about this one, at least on Windows and Linux, full
screen means you can pretend there's no Host OS there, it's great for games
and the like you're on a real machine. There isn't the menu bar available
(because either the menu bar is over the top of the RISC OS content, or the
RISC OS content has been squished under it?).
