Is there anyway to get my menu bar to show up on both of my screens? I don't want to use display mirroring, I just want the menu to be mirrored on both screens.
I'm using 10.6, but if this is a reason to upgrade to 10.8 I will. I want this so bad:)

Mac OS X does not allow for this natively. However, there is a third-party tool called SecondBar that purports to do just this. I have not used this myself, but you might want to take a look.
I've used Secondbar for years and recommend it. I'm currently using it with 10.8 but have used it with 10.7 and 10.6. The only downside IMO is that it only mirrors the application menus and system time. It will not show system icons such as WiFi, Bluetooth, Time Machine, etc.
You can also rearrange and resize windows quickly by right clicking on the red/yellow/green buttons (X - +) of any window. This is useful when connecting a laptop to a display and the OS not remembering where you previously had windows. I have some AppleScripts that automate this as well if you're interested.
