Canonical and the community need to find a solution for people that use their computers for business and productivity to have quick menu access for windows on a multi-monitor setup AND windows that aren't currently active.
There are several problems with the current application menu system used in 11.10, as well as 11.04, and 10.10 Netbook Edition: The user can only have one application menu open at once and the top bar doesn't stretch to the next screen on a multiple monitor setup, which means the user has to go to the default #1 monitor in order to access the application menus, which can be annoying to the user, and waste quite a bit of time in the long run.
PS: It's a lot of the "big things" (like OS crashes and major annoyances) that matter in making Ubuntu an easy-to-use, efficient desktop OS or not, but a whole bunch of little things (like application menus and minor annoyances) can be worse than one, two, or even three big things. It is my duty to take on these challenges, one-by-one, as I see fit. If we, the Ubuntu community, take on all the challenges we possibly can, including big and small, we will see a much nicer, efficient, fast, stable, usable Ubuntu for everyone.
