"Because AfterStep went through a couple of years of feature
adding, it has undergone a separate evolution from the NeXTstep
environment it emulates. Some things, however remain the same. For
instance, the AfterStep Wharf, which is derived from the NeXTstep
Dock. The Wharf is a toolbar interface that holds applications and
utilities for a user to click on to activate."
"The Wharf, like all of the other parts of this window manager,
is a module. AfterStep's toolset is completely comprised of
modules. All of the modules are like bricks comprising a really
solid wall. Besides the Wharf module, two other modules are started
by default in AfterStep: the WinList and the Pager...."
"Menus in AfterStep are handled in a different manner than in
other window managers. In keeping with the NeXTstep interface
standards, all menus pop-up as completely separate objects on the
desktop. In fact, a parent menu will simply disappear when the
child menu appears, unless you double-click the parent menu first
to 'tack' it into place."
