@hube you mean those... Fuck, forgot the name... Whatever, but yes
You'd think people would rather like other layouts, but no, this is still the standard for some reason
@mrtnrdl I'm very tempted, very very tempted indeed
But for one, my keyboard wasn't cheap, second, it would make it hard to type on today's standard, right?
Like, if I don't take the keyboard with my laptop and try typing there
Or is it actually good for learning?
@mrtnrdl ergodox looks like a an abomination though, if I'd get one it's definitely planck
It is the standard because by the time technology caught up that it was no longer necessary for a keyboard layout to intentionally slow the typist all the world was familiar with the standard. Guess it is harder to make such a drastic change. QWERTY sucks but trying to learn others can be pretty difficult, well worth it if you can change over
I've been thinking about getting some ergodox-ish keyboard lately because of some trouble with my hands. I wish I knew someone who has one so I could just try it before buying.
Getting one of those would drive my colleagues nuts, which may be just a much a pro as a con ;) They already openly doubt my sanity because I type on dvorak.
omom14163yWho the fuck designed hands! Seriously!
mundo0346753y@omomthings no one, they are the result of centuries of A/B testing.
Keyboard have been here for a very short time, I believe a/b testing for this new use is happening now. Sadly, with today's medicine and the lack of "life and death" keyboard issues, this change in the hands to accommodate the keyboard makers is not really a priority.
