Companies always change everything wether it works or not.
They have upgraded storage devices, optical drives, ram, processors, monitors, mouse, cables, wired to wireless and more. The have done this even though older technolgy worked okay. The keybaord must be they only thing which is lagging behind with upgrading.
yes it might take a little time to switch tio another layout buty once its changed we could be onto a winner, with greater typing speeds.
I mean I maybe wrong with this whole qwerty design being developed to slow typists down, I dont know, but I do know that once was informed about that.
If there was another layout and all computers started selling them anyway and all the newcomers to computers started with that setup then it would not be a problem.
I have even seen a mental keyboard which doesnot have the numbers, symbols or alphabet over the keys. they are supposed to be brilliant to learn touch typing and it looks mental when someone is typing on a blank keyboard - yuo are reallly going to have to know your stuff to be able to pull off that trick!!!!!!
I do have fetish for computers and yes computers include keybaords.
