Hi,

I have been using Mac for 6 months now. I understand that to quit a program, one must press command + Q.

On the other hand, by pressing command + W merely closes the app and does not complete shut it down. Apps such as VLC will keep on playing if you just press command + W. Why does Apple choose this procedure? What is their logic? I mean, with Windows, when you close the app, it literately closes and essentially quits. I understood this for a while now, but for a first time user, this is confusing. It's not very user friendly in that aspect.
