In the terminal, if I type exit I get logout [Process Completed] but the terminal window is still visible. Of course I can no longer type anything in the window.
I would have expected the terminal window to be disposed like on Ubuntu.
Why does it behave this way?

Terminal -> Preferences

In the "Settings" tab, choose the "Shell" sub-tab. There you will find the option for what should happen when the shell exits.

As to why anyone would want this as the default - me not know.

Thanks Andrew.
It is really strange, the default behavior. But as long as it configured it's OK I guess.

Update:
It closes the window but does not quit the application.
Ah well.

As an aside, I haven't used Terminal in years - check out http://iterm.sourceforge.net/ and its successor http://sites.google.com/site/iterm2home/ for better (IMO) alternatives.

I'm using iTerm 1 myself, but the iTerm 2 site says many people use it regularly already. See http://sites.google.com/site/iterm2home/iterm2-vs-iterm, particularly the top and the bottom.
