Started learning COLEMAK today, hard but still a lot easier that I thought it was going to be!

    @bad-frog I'm not OP, but people say that QWERTY is far from being the most efficient layout, that's why there are alternative ones (although I haven't tried any myself... yet).

    @bad-frog I'm going to be building a new split keyboard for myself in few time and seen as that's me working towards bettering my typing habits, etc., and a lot of what @kamen expanded on; I thought I should also pick up a fitting layout.

    I made the switch one year ago. I'm way faster than I ever was on qwerty, although for people that were already very fast on qwerty switching to a better layout might mainly increase comfort and lower the risk of injury. Good luck!

    I don't only type in English so Dvorak is better for me.
    Unfortunately it still doesn't work for me. The typing itself is indeed more effective but I use a vast amount of hotkeys and they are clumsy in anything but QWERTY. Shotcuts are harder to unlearn/learn as they are patterns in the brain.
