The "yes" or "no" is about saving the workspace image when quitting, not
whether the program is to die or not.

I don't like to clutter my workspaces with files, so I personally prefer "no"
as a default, and interpreted the OP's request to something that "just
finishes the program" in this light.  "Just finish", ie do not save. 


Three out of two people have difficulties with fractions.
