I live pretty happily with a disabled menu-bar.
Disabling it doesn't prevent me from using it (in those rare cases
where I find it more convenient), since I can access it with C-mouse-3.

[ I started disabling the menu-bar many many years ago when the few extra
  lines of screen real-estate it gave me seemed more worthwhile.
  This benefit has diminished over the years as my screens's vertical size
  has grown, but the day my 4:3 laptop dies the benefit will
  increase again.  ]

Indeed, I think Emacs tries pretty hard to make it easy to find those
answers, so while I don't urge anyone to enable the menu-bar, I strongly
encourage people to *use* it for discovery purposes (including the
discover the various additional items in the Help menu).
