I meant that you only need to close things a handful of times per session, not that you would use a different way to do that if there is a close button. You mostly would close the applications/windows that you open for temporary use, but you won't close most of the windows you have open throughout the session.

For that, there could be a "Close Window" option in the application menu.

In any case, this is just some idea that I wanted to put out there for designers. Seemed to work for me, but it's up to designers to decide if it fits in with the overall experience.
