Flyout or collapsible navigation?

We are redesigning navigation for an enterprise web application. We have
decided to have left-hand navigation as opposed to top navigation as the
former is used more commonly in enterprise applications....any
thoughts/opinions/suggestions? Also, we have 6 first-level menu items and
two of these menu items have sub-menu items. Any suggestions on whether
having a flyout or a collapsible navigation for the second-level is better?
Any good examples of the same...?

PC Suites and mobile handsets


Hope everyone is well. Apart from the lovely weather and all the hard work, everything is peachy around these sides of London. Got a new project in hands - the redesign of a PC Suite for a mobile company (discretion advised).

Is Design an Objective Pursuit?

think we can agree that the determining factor in Apple's success is
the creative vision and leadership of Mr. Jobs.

As for visual design, while I agree that it is generally equated with
style, that doesn't mean it has to be. It is up to us as a community to
educate our clients and consumers about the real value and meaning of
