    You use Activity Monitor for that. For a command to force quit nonresponsive apps try cmd+opt+esc.

    Force Quit (Cmd+Opt+Esc) is the direct equivalent, though it's functionally slightly different.

    Terminal+top refers to opening a Terminal session, entering the command top to see a listing of the currently running processes, then using a killall or kill command to end the one you're trying to quit. I wouldn't attempt that one unless you're used to using the Terminal, which if you have to ask you probably aren't.

    Yup, and I was actually off on tops functionality in OS X, I thought it was the same as Linux's, where you can kill the app right from Top... just realized you can't.

    Since that's the case, I would opt for ps ax and killall. And only in very rare occasions.
