And even that is not very usable today. I spoke with Ellen Reitmayr
about that and she told me that this methology isn't the best (Ellen -
correct me if I'm wrong here) 

I mean... it seems to be so easy to put a fixed menubar at the top of the
screen. Users can place the mouse faster to a top aligned menubar than
on floating ones.

But if you have a lot of windows open, it's getting worse. For example,
I always trap into the problem, that the menubar of Mozilla Firefox
isn't raise after the browser is started. You've to click in the main
window to raise it.

I think not copying from Apple nor from Photoshop will be a good start
