Summary 0000346: How does this work / what does this mean?
Description OK. I downloaded Croquet.

I selected the "first steps".

I dragged Sample Teapot to the center of the window. I
notice my CPU time goes to 100% and a window w/o
decorations appears.

I pointed a several things and I sometimes see a pop up
that tries to explain what I can do. When I point at the
doughnut in the upper left, it changes color (no
explanation of what it does). When I click on it a number
of icons appear on the periphery of the window (small and
hard to view). Not sure what the "red arrow" that pops up
and disappears is supposed to mean.

When I point at one of these icons, I see some text.
Clicking on menu for example, provides a menu that appears
to provide some options - not sure why I would use any of
them at this point. The decorations on this window is
different than the workspace. The "pin" in the upper right
appears to make the menu sticky. I figured out you can
still move it by click / drag / drop on the top.

Clicking on "show frame rate" puts up light yellow text
on a white / light blue background that is very hard to
read.

From a first impression, there is obviously a lot of
complexity in this system but no explanation of what
it is / how it works / what items mean. Can you please
provide a "tutorial teapot" that walks the first time
user through the system so they don't get dropped into
the ocean w/o a life raft. [sink or swim....]
