Your OS should have a way to do it.

The wiki article of dvorak shows the multiple ways.

You forgot a basic one... AZERTY
but that's the freaky one that was spoken about earlier
AZERTY is pretty widespread here, but I know it's just in a couple of Germanic countries i.e. Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, and probably a couple more but I don't know which countries that would be

Those five finger shoes are pretty interesting. They're not avaliable in any shop that I've ever heard of.

Think of how hip and I'm-better-at-everything-than-you you would sound when you say "Yeah, I use Dvorak. No big."

Not willing to buy a pair of shoes online I've never tried before. Plus they only sip to Europe apparently and I'm from Australia. No idea what abba dabbas or REI are.

Or when I show them my fivefingers and apple computer and the fact that I listen to bands that not everybody knows about.


I know, I sound like a total hipster or some shit.

But I promise I only do these things because I extensively enjoy them.

You're kinda ****ed

Just superglue some rubber to the bottom of your foot. It'll be almost the same!

(not really)

I use QWERTY and AZERTY.

I live in France but am English, so I'm good with both.

QWERTY. I type fast enough, and it took me long enough to type fast with QWERTY, I don't see enough of a reason to switch.

This could actually make typing interesting. I just set up my laptop to be able to switch on the fly (for the OS). As soon as a find a way to be able to have the keys change as well I'll probably change just for the sake of trying something new, and if I don't like it I can change back to QWERTY in a matter of seconds.

It wouldn't be a mind**** if I could change the physical keys.

On another note, I found this little bit of info and it's enough for me to want to switch.

Because it makes typing easier and more natural, Dvorak may actually decrease the risk of carpal-tunnel syndrome and other forms of repetitive-stress injury (RSI).

I'm so used to typing with QWERTY through years of internet use I doubt I could type as quickly and as accurately as I can know with a new set up, even if it is designed in a superior manner.

Every study done showed people typing as fast if not faster after a month. I'm not too worried about the speed all that much, but avoiding carpel tunnel (thus adding some years of potential guitar playing) seems worth it.
