Three thoughts:

1. Learn to use Quick Look if you really only want to quickly look at a document.

2. If you don't modify something, it does not ask you want to save it. You're the one "leaving the refrigerator door open" if you modify a document and then expect to close it -- losing all changes -- without any prompting. If you're "simply clos[ing] a document in a instant after looking at it" you won't have a problem.

3. Switch to Windows, which has still uses a "perfectly functional, well-accepted, industry standard Save As functionality".

Save As has always worked one way, and has not necessarily made sense. Once you Save As, are you working on the original document (and saved a copy), or have you closed the original (without modification or prompt) and are now working on a new copy? Apple's new system simply makes the choice clear. Yes, it actually takes a bit of thought to do things the new way, but if you can't muster the brain cells to do that perhaps you should stop upgrading OS's and simply stick with the one you like for the rest of your life?
