Linux "Linux is not Windows, and although there are some similarities, you must realize that there may be a few 'new ways of doing things' to learn before you can be comfortable in Linux. Linux is an open-source clone of UNIX, a secure operating system that predates DOS and Windows and is designed for multiple users. The items in the following list generally apply to any UNIX-based *nix system, such as Linux and the various BSD's. For the purposes of this article, assume that it's all Linux."

Just bind it to the program `xkill`. I'm using KDE and it probably has it bound by default.

The author also mentions that you can hit escape to abort xkill. That means that whatever desktop he's using (the screenshots suggest KDE) interacts with xkill beyond regular keybindings. By simply binding it to a key in another WM you *have* to kill a program once you've activated xkill.
