FlowJo uses a hierarchical rather than a logical gate structure, ie
you don't work by creating two gates and then combining them, rather
you place the first gate, open the gated plot and place the second
gate directly on that plot.

The best way to get into FlowJo is to do the tutorial that can be
downloaded from the web-site (<http://www.flowjo.com/tutorial.html>).
Until you have got your head around the fundamental differences
between the programs it is very hard to compare them.
