I saw it on your keyboard

The Dvorak keyboard is one of those examples of people not really knowing what’s good for them.  The Dvorak keyboard allows for more efficient use of the arrangement of keys on a keyboard which then improves speed.  It certainly has a strong underground following, but it would seem that there are power in numbers and people are resistant to change.  All major operating systems are compatible with the keyboard layout, it would just take getting one and learning how to use it.

Dvorak did a boat load of research on the keyboard to prove it’s significance, but it just hasn’t caught on over the past…80 years?  I knew a few friends online and in college that used one, but I’m willing to bet it was just a novelty and they’re back to their QWERTY now.
