Windows Vista, along with many other recent Microsoft apps, show signs of Microsoft attempting to drop the menu bar. Take a look at the following screenshots:
Windows Explorer (Vista)
Internet Explorer 7 (Yes, I know you can enable a menu bar if you want to in IE7, but it's not there by default so that doesn't count.)
Office Word 2007
Windows Photo Gallery
Go to Wikipedia or Google Images for Windows DVD Maker, Windows Contacts, and Media Player 11. I think it's getting a bit obvious....
I have moved my blog to Wordpress at theunixgeek.wordpress.com. I will still be checking back periodically on this one as well, though. 19 April 2009
