10.3: Jump directly to any System Prefs panel from the dock
Authored by: mactectomy on Oct 29, '03 06:28:16AM

I think the reason is that even really smart people like my wife (PhD physics ;^) close the System Prefs window and forget to quit the program--thus using up resources unnecessarily.

Since this behavior is diametrically opposed to standard Mac guidelines (only things like control panels would "quit" when closed in OS <X), there should be an option to override this bizarre feature. No third party tricks, either.

There are other programs that quit when the windows are closed, such as Windows Media Player. But that's no surprise given the source.
