Dvorak beats Qwerty for faster typing with less wrist strain
I love my Dvorak keyboard layout.
It helps me type faster and reduce wrist strain.
Just say no to Qwerty, read up on Dvorak
Dvorak has a devout following. Randy Cassingham has written a decent overview.
Keyboards I use and love
On Windows I use my Matias dual labelled keyboard.
I also used a Type matrix Dvorak keyboard in the past. Mostly because of it’s compact size and wanted to try a straight up/down keyboard with no diagonal reach.
On the MacBook Pro Retina I can use my laptop keyboard as Dvorak without an external keyboard, thanks to KbCovers.com!
