Yes! I know most of the letters touch-type now!

Woot, congrats! I think I should be able to re-gain my QWERTY speed pretty soon. Maybe in a few days to a week. I'll post again with an update.

Only recently, but I'm afraid I'll confuse my typing abilities.

you will at first, but if you drop QWERTY, you'll get used to it.

^what about using other cpu's? I'd have to lug the keyboard with me everywhere, ick.

I like my keyboard the way it is...

I see the logic behind it, but...no. I have an average of 80 wpm on a normal keyboard, and I'm fine with that.

They keyboard doesn't change the input options on the computer.

I have 109 wpm usually on Qwerty, the Dvorak is just for the hell of it.

I guess I could see using one to f*ck with people who go on my computer. After I memorize the Dvorak, I would rearrange the letters so it looks like a qwerty keyboard.

If you're using other computers regularly, than it might not be such a good idea.

I never did change my letters around. I used a chart and after the first day I had most of it memorized and I memorized the rest the next day.

What's the point?
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/4/05 - 12:35:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think I will ever be able to do that.
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 10/22/05 - 7:49:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
what exactly is it? I've never heard of it before
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 11/6/05 - 2:20:12 PM EST (GMT-5)

16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 11/6/05 - 11:32:50 PM EST (GMT-5)

My nerdy older brother uses it. I don't really see the point.
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 11/7/05 - 9:14:28 AM EST (GMT-5)
Hrm....I'd try it but I'm used to a QWERTY at this point.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 12/7/05 - 4:09:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd like to try it out for fun, but I don't think I'd use it regularly. I'd enf up just confusing the hell out of myself.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 12/10/05 - 1:26:07 AM EST (GMT-5)

16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 12/10/05 - 1:28:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. Thats just screwy.

And no, I haven't considered because I didn't even know about it before just now. ^_^

16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/11/05 - 7:24:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeah... There is a picture by the yes answer on the question.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 12/11/05 - 9:36:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well, I was unaware of this keyboard layout until just now, but I'm not willing to switch from QWERTY. What's the point?
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 2/11/06 - 5:11:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
I type somewhere around 110-100 on a QWERTY, not using homekey, and mostly typing with my right hand.

Hahahaha. So no. I'm too used to this.
