What kinds of items for menu bar?

I'm just curious, what do people put in their meu bars?

Currently I have a set of buttons at the bottom of the screen to show show/book windows when clicked/triggered. Should I just use these for my menu items?

I didn't bother with menu bars and from reading posts neither did a lot of other people. Menu bars and other such additions are esoteric and
add nothing to the functionality and design that I feel Sun are looking for.

Mine just has "File" with "Exit" under it, and "Help" with "About UrlyBird" under it (my user instructions for CSR).
