Re: Global menu bars?

Amiga OS -- but you had to right-click to open the menus

But it wasn't particularly difficult to do as you didn't need to click before moving the mouse or when the pointer was inside the menu bar, you could just push the pointer up and hold right button down some time before the pointer hit the top of the screen, choose the menu option from the menu which would automatically open because the pointer was over the menu bar and the right button was pressed, then release the right button. Easier than the Mac's OS at the time I think.
