I enjoy seeing someone else critique the quotes, saves me the trouble sometimes. Interesting theory about switching keyboards, I may have to try that some day, but for now I am glad to have mastered one.

Years ago I first learned to touch type on Dvorak. I picked up a lot of bad habits, and peaked around 80+ WPM for many years with mediocre accuracy.

A few years ago, I switched to Colemak, and my accuracy improved substantially. I peaked at the high 90s. Here is the my profile from that era: https://www.keyhero.com/profile/teilo/

Some time later, I decided to go to Qwerty, but using the Kazantsev fingering method. Again my accuracy improved, and I was into the low 100s: https://www.keyhero.com/profile/teil0/

And now, because I cannot give my brain a rest, I returned to my first layout, Dvorak. I am regularly in the 120s now after only a couple months, and still improving. I can hit the high 130s on a regular basis now.

Lessons learned:

Could I retain my previous layout when learning a new one?

No. I tried every time. Didn't work without impeding my progress.

Is there a difference between layouts?

Yes. When I went back to Dvorak I had significantly less finger strain and could hammer out combinations with less thought and effort than on Qwerty or Colemak.

Will a layout prevent you from attaining a high speed?

No. The differences between layouts do not matter. Don't buy into the hype. You can attain a high speed on any reasonably good layout. The ability of the brain to master a skill far exceeds the intrinsic limitations of any given keyboard layout. If your goal is to win typing competitions, one layout is nearly as good as any other.

Why does changing layouts help you improve?

Because it forces you to relearn everything and this gives you the opportunity to break deeply ingrained bad habits. The single best thing I did to improve my typing was to learn a different layout (now for the 3rd time!). But it would not have mattered which layout I did this with.

Why go back to Dvorak instead of something even more optimized, like Workman or QGMLWY?

Practicality. Dvorak has universal OS support, and has for many years. Even Colemak, which is gaining a lot of support, was a PITA because I had to install a special layout on older versions of Windows. Dvorak is everywhere, even on mobile.

What is QGMLWY?
