So far, nobody has mentioned that Apple has long had the convention of
"Quit." It was Microsoft which came along and redefined it to "Exit."

Anyone know what the X-Windows convention is?

Ah, and then there's Unix...
:w :q :wq :wq! ^d X exit ^X^C ~. ^[x X Q :quitbye CtrlAltDel ~~q
:~q logout save/quit :!QUIT ^[zz ^[ZZ ZZZZ ^H ^@ ^L ^[c $q ^# ^E ^X
^I ^T ? help helpquit ^D ^d ^C ^c help ^]q exit ?Quit ?q (thanks to
edw -at- sequent -dot- com for that!)
