AFAIK Quantal will add an option to use old fashion menus AKA "locally
integrated menus" instead of the global menu (well, it was originally
planned for Precise...).
Top Bar will also work in this case.
It is more generic and it also gives a 'location hint' to the user (how
will a new user know that the 'menu bar' is the thing on the top and not
the thing on the left?). IMHO, 'Top Bar' is less ambiguous.
And using 'Top Bar' will also reduce the diff between Ubuntu and Gnome
manuals (= less work for translators).
So yes, I'm pro 'Top Bar' :p
