Colemak Keyboard Layout
With ergonomic computing in mind, I decided it was time to switch to Colemak. Colemak has a higher key frequency on it's home row vs Qwerty, is widely available on most devices (except Windows
), is far less radical than Dvorak and even maintains z, x, c, v positions for the most common shortcuts.
The average typist's speed is typically (🤭) between 30-40 wpm
. After a large initial productivity dent, I can consistently reach that range with 97% accuracy. I learned with the slow is smooth, smooth is fast
mantra on gtypist
. My thankful fingers have no intention of switching back to the barbarous Qwerty and they'll continue getting faster. [addpiclater]
