Some 20+years ago, when I was still a student studying informatics engineering, someone introduced me to NeXTSTEP and I just fell in love. Years ahead of anything else in many areas... anyway.. nowadays we know that OS X is largely based on NeXTSTEP, is an improvement, or just inspired from it. One thing that stroke me as odd was the app menu of any particular application...: It was odd but somehow I got used to it and after a certain while I liked it a lot. Something similar exists in OSX but it occupies half (more or less) of the top screen. NeXTSTEP menus were: 1. detachable; once detached they could be moved anywhere close to the area that their action would refer; no need to move the mouse to the other corner of the monitor back and forth. Super ergonomics and a huge plus for me. 2. they could either stay were they are after a menu item is selected or they could close; their behavior was programmable (no? lol, maybe my memory fails me). The fact that the app menu is detached from the app window seemed odd to me mainly because I had been using Windows for quite some time and that difference was made apparent. I didn't like it at first because it more or less forced me to focus on the app window - after a while I loved it because it *did* force me to focus on the app window, lol. Of course, something similar exists in OS X, but the implementation is different. So, would you like to see NeXTSTEP menus in OS X? Do you think other apps would benefit from this? Please discuss.
