Disable automatic application termination in OS X
Authored by: sduck on Aug 02, '12 08:14:35AM

Are you sure about this? While reading this, I started up some 5 apps, closed all their windows, and switched back to chrome to continue reading and post this. I just checked back, and while they were in the background, they didn't quit or anything. Still there. Haven't done this trick terminal thing in the past or anything like it. Perhaps you mean something different by going to the background? Using mountain lion on a macbook pro here.

Disable automatic application termination in OS X

It depends on the application. I see it with several Apple apps, notably TextEdit. But I'm not seeing it with others. So it may only be a handful of Apple apps that do this.
