For a large part this stems from the fact that the Lisa type of GUI does not have the fight between MDI and SDI. The question simply never arises, because the Lisa type of GUI does not offer the choice to create either of both; it's something different all along. I usually think of it as 'MDI on steroids unified with a window manager'. It virtually includes all benefits of a SDI and and the benefits of an MDI."

GNOME menu at the top

This really makes sense since most people read top left across and down. Microsoft made the menu in the left bottom corner popular but to me thats just screwy.

I like how OS X put the window functions on the left hand side, this makes sense since most of what you do is on the left hand side anyway.

Since I read from top left corner, I do NOT want the menu there. I want my applications.
