The Dvorak Keyboard - Wikipedia (paraphrased)

This quote was added by tailzd
The Dvorak keyboard layout was designed with the belief that it would significantly increase typing speeds with respect to the QWERTY layout. Dvorak believed that there were many problems with the original QWERTY keyboard pattern, and studied letter frequencies and the physiology of the hand and created a new pattern to alleviate identified problems.

Even though speed isn't proven to be better on Dvorak over QWERTY, comfort of the hard and reduction of strain is and typing on Dvorak is a much more enjoyable experience once touch typing is developped.

Yea and it turns out it's all bullshit because there's been no concrete study that shows Dvorak helps at all with typing speed.
