comment Closing modal dialogs
I agree almost entirely, but I don't think that dialogs should have [x] buttons. I see [x] in window chrome as ending a task that you began earlier. It saves and closes files and email messages (and makes sure they've been saved), destroys browser windows, and exits whole applications. Using [x] to dismiss dialogs dilutes that meaning (my personal opinion, of course). Also, every dialog asks a question (sometimes that question is "could you please read this?"). Clicking a button answers the question, clicking the [x] just means "go away".
