Learning Dvorak?

This is my first attempt at writing a blog post in Dvorak. I spent three minutes doing it.
  • This is my first attempt at writing a blog post in Dvorak. I spent three minutes doing it.

    Yeah, to retype your entire sentence took me about thirty seconds. It gets faster all the time. Stick with it, it feels so much better to type in dvorak, my hands don't hurt nearly as much as they used to. I don't know if thats your reason or not, but it sure helps me!
    • My reason is that it's objectively better. Since I don't need to use a zillion different computers anymore, and type more than ever, it's a good time to learn.

      I'm learning to appreciate the benefits already. The learning curve is easier than VI.
      • Even if you do have to switch back to a qwerty keyboard - which will happen - you'll discover it takes about three keystrokes and you have switched back.
        • It's not that, so much as the switching while learning. I want to use nothing but Dvorak until I get the hang of it.
          • I actually found that even after I'd become fluent in Dvorak, it was difficult to switch between it and QWERTY (in both directions). Over time, however, I've come to be able to differentiate between the two - though I'm still slower in QWERTY.

            Keep at it, it's definitely worth it in the end.

    • I plan to game in QWERTY. The Mac makes it real easy to toggle (unlike Windows). There's a pull-down in the menu bar.

        Don't worry about learning it, it's easy! I can easily keep up 300 cpm but if I focus I can do 320 cpm no problem. Just keep using it, the more you type the better! Qwerty sucks!
