Ubuntu has modified the toolkits (at least Gtk) for this and their
Unity UI puts application menubar to the panel at top.  Panel of
course has also other elements on the right, but the application
menubar is on the left side of it.

It's really annoying on older laptops with 4:3 displays because some
applications have so much stuff on their menubar that rightmost menu
headings get clipped out.

You can get a live CD for latest long-term-suppport (LTS) Ubuntu
from here:

There may still be some applications using toolkits which haven't
been hacked to support this, but at least all the major applications
menubars go to the panel on top.
