Programs without an explicit "quit" or "exit" button/menu item

You know the kind I'm talking about. The kind where the only way to "quit" is to close all the open windows.

Maybe it's the years of Mac use speaking, but even on Windows I don't like the "closing windows = quitting the app" thing. It's just wrong.

    I used to think closing windows = quitting the program, but as I became a more experienced computer user I learned that that was not the case, and I actually kinda agree with the Mac way of doing things, despite being a Windows user for basically all my life.

    That said, Quit/Exit in the menu doesn't necessarily close the whole program either.  Programs that regularly use exit to tray will use that to become a tray icon.  There should just be separate close window and end program selections...or one combined selection that specifically indicates both.

    A couple games I play don't have a quit function. They don't even fully close. If they freeze up, you gotta restart your device or TROLL + ALT +DEL out of them
