get used to it

UWM was designed to be easy to use once you're used to it. And although there are many people out there thinking different, getting used to UWM is not more difficult than getting used to any other window management system:

How ''intuitive'' is it to press a button with an X painted on to close a window or to double-click somewhere to start a program? - Well it's exactly as ''intuitive'' as pressing the right mouse button to start programs and pressing the middle button for dragging windows around. Only that people aren't used to this.

In this section we'll take you on a short tutorial tour through the world of UWM to give you an impression of how to use it. It was written for all those who are curious about UWM but lost in the differences of the user interface.
