I'm only suggesting that being stuck on a qwerty keyboard will never get
anyone to move to anything better. look at how much work it is to move
to dvorak. everytime you move to a new computer you need to change its
key layout and if that computer is a laptop then you have to try to get
the keys remapped. using a driver doesn't help because it'll boot into
qwerty if it is a pc. so at some point the keys will have the wrong
keycaps on them.

I'd like people to think of the problem, not the solution. and if the
solution is that you learn something new, well when you learned what you
use now it was new then.


Special knowledge can be a terrible disadvantage if it leads you too
far along a path that you cannot explain anymore.
