Hi, My vote would go with having a left menu (similar to Kierans) as more and more people have widescreen monitors so vertical screen space is at a premium though horizontal isn't.

What would be really cool would be if the menu could be themed/theme specific so we could have a theme with it on the left and one with it on the top.

How would a menu similar to the one Ivan proposes work with a large number of items (e.g. reports)?

It wouldn't really, unless you made it double height.

Added another mockup (mockup3) of something similar to kierans suggestion, as a sidebar with a minimise/close button and a pushpin to make it stick/stay open if required. Also shows custom menu items.

Instead of creating sub navigation elements it could make sense to use mega drop-down navigation. They have several advantages over the currently used navigation: http://www.useit.com/alertbox/mega-dropdown-menus.html [^]

For 3.90 we decided to go with more modest menu changes, these are complete now. For 4 we will look again at a complete new menu.
