Anyone else with a short pinky finds it uncomfortable to type p while touch typing? Thinking of buying an ortholinear keyboard in the hope it'll be more comfortable.

    Given what I'm doing I'll use one of 3 fingers to actuate P. Not sure an ortholinear is entirely necessary. Typistry finger rules are just one of many options.

    @SortOfTested yeah I use either the pinky or the ring finger to type p, but I'm trying to learn proper touch typing. A few months ago I could type at ~70wpm but my hands were dancing all over the keyboard, I felt like a lot of energy and time was wasted typing that way.

    (pinky problem is actually an excuse to buy an ortholinear keyboard, I just think they're very pretty)

    Yep, it's fine. Same key distance as a full size keyboard. The goal of this type of keyboard is your hands do not move. They're designed for keyboard only workflows and function with a hyper key + layer approach.

    @SortOfTested I want it so so bad, but it's too expensive right now (weak currency). Once the dollar gets cheaper in relation to my currency I'll buy it for sure.

    They are definitely not the cheapest. You might be able to build from parts a little cheaper.
