    Anyone use this layout? I have the strangest feeling that it is super easy to learn for someone who has never typed before, but darn near impossible for anyone who has been typing on qwerty for more than 5 years...

    i changed my keybord to that lay out for a while but i like the normal way better because i have been using it for so many years. It was funny though when people would use my computer because they would think it was so weird

    I have a split keyboard. Don't think I could go back to a standard one. [​IMG]

    I've heard that people using Dvorak keyboards can type at speeds totally unheard of by conventional qwerty users (170-200 wpm error-free). The qwerty setup was actually intended to make you type more slowly so the keys of the typewriter had a lesser chance of getting jammed. I think it's like learning a language. The earlier you learn, the better chance you have of mastering it and being able to switch from one style to the other. I'd love to try it someday.
