Yes, it’s true: the public beta version of OS X did not have an Apple menu. Instead, the Apple logo was in the center of the menu bar, and it just sat there. It was not a menu– it was just a badge. There was more than a bit of an uproar about this and the Apple menu’s position and some functionality was restored in Mac OS X 10.0.
