Can anyone (try to) explain the merits of the floating menus?

You just need a single click and no drag to perform an arbitary (menu) action. You can easily detach the menu groups you need and thereby form some kind of "favorite menus".

A floating menu is more like a toolbar (or many toolbars) though a toolbar wastes space in every single window (but has better locality in return).

I think there are no absolute pros or cons for either of the approaches. Both have their merits. If you have ever used NeXTstep you will know that vertical menus are very nice, a look&feel is something hard to describe in words.
