How do I disable the global application menu?

I recently upgraded to 11.10 from 10.04. After the upgrade, the menu is shifted to the top column, which is pretty annoying.

I would prefer the old version where the menu is attached to the window itself.

Any idea how to get it.

Just remove appmenu and appmenu indicator and related packages:

sudo apt-get purge indicator-appmenu appmenu-gtk
