As long as reverting to non Mac OS-style is straitforward it would not hurt 
much, however my experience with non-mac users is clearly against the mac 

Users usually don't understand it, and since it's difficult (at least in the 
macs) to see what app the menu belongs to, they end up looking for menu 
points that are not available.

But once again, provided we get a simple choice (I mean ONE dialog, one click 
and you get the "old" configuration back, it would not be a problem.

Please remember that 21% who want the mac os-style means 79% who don't, and 
that's a clear majority...

The problem with the world is stupidity. Not saying there should be a
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the
safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
