Oberon uses the middle mouse button (MM) to start a command.  Move the
mouse over any command in any text, and activate MM.  The interface is
actually very simple, but it is novel and "European" so you will need to
read some of the documentation.

A lot of care went into the system so that you can activate the command to
take you into the documentation when the system starts up.  It may be
helpful to read everything that is visible when you start, and then open
the viewer.

There are at least 2 flavors of Oberon at this time.  To give more specific
help to you, you may want to look at the first line in the Log window, and
let us know which one you are running.
