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.

Exactly. That's why a "Unified" menubar are the only sensible solution for Etoile - or any DE based on the OpenStep specification.

It's a bit ignorant to claim this is the only sensible solution. I'm sure there are NeXTstep users that find floating menus to be the ultimate productivity boost.

Not saying I don't like the Mac-style unified menubar, just that different people have different preferences.
