http://tech.yahoo.com/blogs/devlin/404 Hmmm, 400 words on the center row on the DVORAK compared to the 100 on the QWERTY, and helps carpal tunnel and other injuries, :Pc: I think I'll start the transition over and paste letters over my keys..... funny, I never new the QWERTY format was made to keep the keys from sticking on the typewriter. :p

The thing is though that your used to typing on QWERTY. moving over, even if it is to an better, faster keyboard design will still mean you will have to learn typing over again.

On the top of that consider that you can't control your IT equipment on every computer you use, and even if you could when someone tries to use your computer at work (say you take a week off) then they would go mad because they will be used to QWERTY.

Is it better? Yes.

Is it feasible? No.
