I am switching from pc to mac...

In windows, there is always a concern when you leave programs open that you are not using and you should close everything before shutting down.

Does mac not care how many programs you have open (regardless of whether a window is open) and leave open even while not using them? If it does not matter to the mac, I should break my habit of closing programs (I am actually talking about closing programs, not just the red X on a window).

Thanks
