For desktop apps, you should follow the platform standard or user preference, and using a standard toolkit should take care of that. For web, I think the answer depends on the type of window you are dealing with, and I would lean toward putting a close button on the top left corner. I am not a mac user at all, but I think closing a window inside a web app ...

For most decisions about whether to put an interactive element (filter control, comments box, etc.) above or below an element it usually comes down to which you want the user to read and engage first. In this case you likely don't want the user to read each of the fonts before choosing to filter them, so I would put it at top. This allows the user to ...

As always, it depends, and to me it would depend on the target audience. Our western culture reads from left to right, eye trackers will also back this up, we start at the top left, and we end our "scan" at the bottom right.

People expect the logo to be on the left, with other links on the same row just because that's how most sites are. Centering the logo will work too, if the page's overall layout is centered, and if... There's nothing else in the row with the logo or The centered logo is clearly the focus of that top row, among other elements.

People read from left to right so I put it on the left. Except when they don't. Then I put it on the right. Except when it stands alone by itself, in which I case I might put it in the middle, though sometimes offset in all these cases, but, in all cases, I put it where the designer says to put it.
