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.

The Dock is directly from NeXTSTEP - and that's where OS X has the dock from ;) . The menu bar is obviously inspired by Mac OS X, but is none-the-less the only sensible option for menubars in GnuSTEP due to the detached nature of menues in NextSTEP.

I'm old fashioned I know, but I liked those detached menus from NEXTSTEP. ;)

Give me a dwrite options for OS X 10.5 for such a layout effectively removing the top menubar and I'd be very happy and more productive. Give me the option to autohide all other windows--except those targeted with my current application--by double clicking the active working app icon and it would make my fond memories of NeXTSTEP/Openstep rise again.
