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."

Fitt's Law + menu bars

The weird thing is that I don't like to use menus when I don't have a global menu bar.

But in Mac OS X, it's a pleasure to use menus, so I use them more often. So I think that if you say, "I don't like to use menus that often anyways", that's probably because there isn't a global menu bar.
