Since 1983 Apple has kept its menu bar stuck to the top of the
screen, as opposed to the top of the window like (almost) everyone else.
There are some pros and cons of this solution, but so far I believed the
former are in majority (Tog explained it more lively than I ever will in
his 1999's column "A Quiz Designed to Give You Fitts" )
However, this week Apple unveiled a new set of LCD displays, among them
a big 30" monster. And just a glimpse at this otherwise nicely looking
display  is enough to notice the tiny white menu bar almost invisible
at the top of the screen.
Since the huge display has the same density as the smaller displays currently
on market (100 ppi), and Mac OS does only support one size of interface
controls, I assume that the 30" display should be put in the same distance
from the user than the smaller models.
I can then imagine that the top menu will sometimes be a really long
distance away from user's current perception space. Won't that be a problem?
Am I missing something here? Will Top O' The Screen Menu become Apple's
another dreaded legacy similar to One Button Mouse?
