In Conclusion. As you can see there is not much to making rip, cross, or compound cuts. Using the fence and miter gouge is something you can get the hang of very quickly. But as easy as it is, the biggest mistake you can make is to become complacent when using a table saw. Remember you are handling a very powerful tool with an incredibly sharp blade that rotates at several thousand RPM. Always make sure to follow the safety measures, and you will be fine.
When you are making angled cuts simply align the sheet with the straight part of the miter gouge, and push it together with the miter gouge toward the blade. The saw will make the cut at an angle using the pivoting part of the miter gouge. Whereas fences allow you to make rip cuts, miter gouges provide you with a lot more options. You can make both square and angled cross-cuts as well as specialty cuts. In order to make a cross-cut, you need to slide the miter gouge back toward you. You then need to put the board against the straight part of the gouge.
If you encounter some resistance while moving the fence, I would advise you apply some sort of lubrication like wax. Factory or stock gouges are sometimes poorly made, and most people correct this by purchasing an after market miter gouge. However, if you get a table saw with a bad fence and leave it that way, it's not a shortcoming for which you can easily compensate.
