Dvorak is something that I've really wanted to explore for a long time now. What type of Dvorak keyboard are you using? or did you just do the layout conversion + letter stickers?

I really want to explore it, but like you mentioned, you tend to forget qwerty. :(

I have a laptop so I just popped all the keys off and rearranged them. They're all the same size so they're perfectly interchangeable. Probably wouldn't work with a detached keyboard, I think all the rows are different sizes on most of those.

Some of the threads I've read on the subject say that when you need to go back to qwerty you'll remember it really fast. I dunno, I'll tackle that issue when it comes up. It's pretty simple to switch between the two layouts in Windows so I'll probably just do that and switch back when I'm done if I need to use a public comp or a friend's comp.

Ah. Yeah I've been trying to just buy a Dvorak keyboard. I've read that there are differences with the way the qwerty converted to Dvorak vs dedicated Dvorak works. It's not just the location of the keys, it's the way they're positioned and aligned? If that makes any sense.

I haven't seen anything on the subject so I can't really say. I can see how that could affect things though.

The problem with that is how expensive a dedicated Dvorak keyboard can be. Might be worth it to switch first, see if you like it, and then put in the cash investment.
