The ‘X’ button behavior on Windows Mobile OS

October 19, 2006

There is a post about why the ‘X’ button on the Windows Mobile application window does not close apps.
It minimizes the applications and the OS closes unused apps as memory decreases.

Reading the post helps me understand better why MS does it this way.
Frankly, I didn’t like it too much and some say its a design flaw.
At least from my experience the OS does not handle low memory scenarios very well.
If it did people would complain less about the X button behavior.
