While this is a good discussion to have, this should not be a priority. Of all the issues we have
to discuss, the benefits of nailing this down and implementing it doesn’t outweigh the time to
perform UX testing to see if it was a success; this is especially true when looking at topics like
LibO's UI, icon issues, Default settings, and so on.
IDK... my thoughts...

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-design] Canonical reflexion about 'Quit' menu
thanks for the hint ... and although this should (sooner or later) take place on a Ubuntu
discussion list, here are some thoughts based on earlier discussions concerning the StartCenter
(during OOo times).

Have you seen that blog entry ?
It's very interesting and they talk about LibreOffice.
Well, it's about a problem with LibreOffice's "Quit" menu...
Things I really like about this article is to ask fundamental questions ... although there are
examples that things went wrong on some of the systems mentioned. For example, the Android system
tries to care about system resources in a way, that "Quit" isn't required. But reality shows, that
people install task managers (Google added one in the
meantime) to get rid of "bad" programs.
Concerning LibreOffice, the analysis isn't complete. Two things to add:
* The "Start Module" is required on MacOS X to select the
application to start (StartCenter). There, we lack the dedicated
application starter icons we have on Windows or on Linux - this
conforms to the Mac platform requirements.
* The behavior of the "Start Module" can be set to close
LibreOffice if the last document has been closed. Thus, no need
for an explicit "Quit" - although the menu item is still there.
Spec at .
Well, the open issues can be solved - of course (maybe requiring some additional effort to respect
some platform specific behavior). But, this issue is currently of rather low importance to me.
