No, it's not. I don't know what desktop environment you are using,
Gnome or KDE, but both of them have a logout or close session or
something similar in the menu. This will however close all open
programs, so don't forget to save documents you might be working on
P.S. I recommend you don't post beneath the signature if your client
can't quote properly. Or you could trim the signature (it starts with
-- , two dashes and a space). I almost missed what you wrote because my
client shows the signatures in gray.
If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
