I won’t bother you with the same old story you usually find on the internet about switching from qwerty layout to dvorak.
I’ll also say this once: dvorak sucks as much as qwerty for programming. I code mainly in python and C (with plenty of shell scripting) and let me tell you, it does not suck less typing in dvorak. I’ve tried it for a couple of months, I got used to it, still sucks.
I’ve been through the tutorials, through the howto’s, I’ve enjoyed learning typing with dvorak, I still prefer qwerty. I can code faster with qwerty and I find it less annoying. (Maybe the 23 years using qwerty did this, but that’s how it is)
I might try colemak one of these days. Might. Just for the sake of it.
