Dvorak keyboard layout

A lot of people out there have no idea that there are keyboard layouts other than QWERTY. And, maybe, the layout that is used on Nokia phones. (Of course, there are a lot of people out there who don’t know that keyboard layouts and mobile phones exist at all). QWERTY is the de-facto standard currently. Keyboards shipped with new computers are, by default, QWERTY keyboards. Most touchtypists are QWERTY touchtypists. And in some places you don’t even have a chance of finding any other keyboard layout in the computer shops.

Dvorak keyboard layout is something I was interested in for some time now. I haven’t tried it, but it does look yummy. I haven’t seeen any Dvorak keyboards around and I doubt I will do so in the near future. My job requires me to use a number of computers, which are used by other people too, so, I guess, I will either have to stay away from Dvorak, or find myself another job. ;)

But if it was just for one or two computers, I would really liked to try it out. If you had or have a chance to, then do so and share your experience…
