I'm not sure if I understand how it works for you, but for me, under
w32 (Windows XP), Alt + SPC has not the "normal" w32 behavior, Emacs
gets that key. Under my current GNU/Linux system with Metacity, the
window menu is opened however (which I did not like at first but have
gotten used to now for minimize/maximize etc). My guess is that this
key would not work for many Gnome users.
