Here's what I use:

In EmacsW32 I use

  (setq frame-title-format "%b - Emacs")

This is probably what people on ms windows expect. Is that what people
on other GUI systems expect as well?

I am stuck on Microsoft Windows at work, and there I expect (just like
a different proprietary platform I use at home):

* to know which version of Emacs is actually running (emacs-version);

* to know whether it is running on my local desktop or a remote server
  e.g. via RDP or Xming (system-name);

* to know whether the buffer is visiting a file or not; and if so,
  what the full path is to a file (%f); otherwise, what Emacs has
  named it (%b).
