Absolutely. Especially if you're somewhat new to the system.

Yes, however, a click on YES could still try to gracefully shut other
applications down, in case of running GWorkspace as sortof a session
manager, that is. You'd have to figure out a way whether GWorkspace actually
IS a session manager (or was just launched as one of many applications)
though. If it's just another application, GWorkspace would have to exit
quietly then.

Problem would be how to figure out that GWorkspace is indeed a session
manager... :-p
