OpenStep, GNUstep "The Etoile project is pleased to announce the release of version 0.2 of the Etoile User Environment for UNIX-like systems. The Etoile project aims to produce a user environment for desktop and small form-factor devices, with tight integration between components. The 0.2 release is primarily targeted at developers interested in a GNUstep-based environment. This release includes improvements to the Camaelon theme engine, providing a clean and modern appearance to GNUstep-based applications. This is combined with the Etoile Menu Server, providing a horizontal menu bar similar to that found in Mac OS, and making this the first Etoile release with enough features in place to be usable on a daily basis." There are screenshots too.

Those in Rhapsody DR1/DR2 were reminiscent of BeOS.

NeXTSTEP/Openstep's Floating Menus/Tear-off Submenus restoring state upon close that Apple has started to use again in Pages.app (Andrew Stone's Cocoa AppSuite uses as much as possible) are hindered by the Top Menu bar being ubiquitous across the screen. And for the lazy user the right mouse button for NeXTSTEP/Openstep did allow access to an applications full menu system.
