Gnome Have you ever been bitten by accidentally loading multiple instances of the same application in GNOME? When you click on the launcher of an already-running application in GNOME, it will load up another instance of the same application, instead of switching to the already running one. This can lead to bugs and other unforeseen behaviour, which of course isn't desirable. In GNOME 3, this issue has been resolved.

I would like the default to be task-based, but configurable to be otherwise if needed by the user, or if it doesn't make sense to be task-based.

But... don't do it the OS X way. If you close the last window of the program, just close the program ok? ;)
