There was another thread of this a year or so ago but I thought I'd bring it back. So this guy created a different keyboard layout back in the day. It competed with the qwerty keyboard layout but lost because of the way that type writers work. The generic QWERTY keyboard we use now was actually designed to make people type slower so that the typewriter heads wouldn't get jammed as often. Well the Dvorak method actually is designed to speed up typing. All of the most used letters are placed in the home row 'a o e u i d h t n s' and characters than are normally near other letters are placed by eachother, such as t and h in the home row. I started playing with it today and any computer can changed to the dvorak method in the control panel options. Any thoughts? The only thing I really don't like is that the hot keys are in different locations.
