As a none Gnome user this recently found screenshot has me asking you about the top panel, where to find and although it looks fancy what is the functionality. to me it does not look like a regular Gnome panel?

This sceeenshot is not mine

It's the main taskbar. It acts just like the start panel in MS Windows. The little paw print in the top left is the same as the start icon in windows. Its the default GNOME panel the dockbar at the bottom is not part of GNOME and there is usually a second taskbar here to hold open programs, workspaces and the recycle bin. Hope this helps!

The menu is gnome menubar. It allows you to stick some applications menubars in the panel (note, not all applications work with this). The icon is the gnome-main-menu applet.

It is GNOME, you can't customize Mac like that, and Mac dock has a thousand icons you can't get rid of. See more about global menu here: http://code.google.com/p/gnome2-globalmenu/
