No, I was referring to the Menu.  On a Mac every programs Menu, i.e.
"File", "Edit", "View", etc is at the top of the screen, not attached
to the program window.  There are reasons to believe that this is
significantly more efficient and I've decided I like it.

Actually, I don't use it at work because I spend too much time in
non-KDE apps, so maybe I am ready to move on from it.
