Disable automatic application termination in OS X
Authored by: glusk on Aug 02, '12 09:38:32PM

Not sure about "flawed" but things sure changed in Lion. The apps that I have noticed auto-closing also save their state. So instead of CMD-Q to quit an app and close all windows, I have to CMD-W or OPT-CMD-W to close the windows that are open so that they don't re-open when the app is launched later. But I don't have to CMD-Q because the app will then quit itself.

I think this needs a lot of work as it's taking me a very long time to get used to and it's inconsistent across apps. Even if it were consistent, I'm not sure I'd like it. But it seems to be the new way. :-(
