Some former employees used the Oberon environment at my instigation.
They were resistant at first, but after a few months, I asked if they
ever tried to inter-click to make things happen when they were working
in other environments (yes) and if they ever tried to use the other
environment's methods to do things in Oberon (no).  I'm not sure that
suggest it is more intuitive, but it was clearly the subconscious's
method of choice.
