I'm french, I use qwerty because azerty is terrible for coding and I don't even have to type proper french most of the time. The only time I write in french is in instant messengers with my friends, so we don't really care about writing properly with accents and all.
>>52634316 I've been typing on these keyboards since 20 years, it's really hard to change. And QWERTY is useless for French language. People who aren't much into computers have a much better time switching keyboard layouts.
>>52634539 Because then you would need a keyboard with a ridiculous amount of keys that like 80% of the users wouldn't have use of. Or really fucking annoying button combinations that would make writing hell for some languages.
And you know, generally all current keyboards can be used for with all Latin alphabets. It's just annoying if it's not configured for that language.
>>52633848 >be belgianfag >frenchfags forced azerty on your country >tfw until you finally decided to get qwerty, hotkey layouts like in games never made any sense and people had no fucking clue what to do with you when you told them your keyboard isn't normal >tfw after deciding to join the qwerty conventionrace all you get is headwind because everything in your country is designed around frenchfag keyboards fml and fuck this stupid country and fuck the french with their stupid layout, qwerty is objectively more logical with its layout of the 4 different kinds of brackets and such
>>52634028 >>52634362 Man, I'm french and I live in Canada. I just got used to qwerty so fast I can't go back to azerty anymore. We have no reason to stay on AZERTY, that's just a retarded keyboard layout.
>>52634102 This is false. AZERTY is perfectly fine. However, Microsoft's implementation of it in Windows is garbage.
It's like MS never gave a shit about internationalisation. Heck, even the "Power" button used to be translated as "Puissance" in Windows 10. They're probably not rich enough to pay human translators, and have to rely on Bing.
>>52636540 Confirmed retard Did you forget we have two official languages? Go try typing a french letter/email on a qwerty, it's shite.
Azerty might be far from perfect (imo it's only flaw is that you can't make accentuated capital letters, something most french people couldn't care less about anyway), but qwerty is far from perfect either, even for typing in english. Qwerty has a better layout for coding but if you want to type truly efficient get a dvorak keyboard.
If you don't like it here fucking leave? :^) O wait you're probably underage bait who's living at his mums place!
>>52636911 good argument, but I'm from Flanders Belgium and couldn't care less about the french language >>52636945 check out the 2 apostrophes above the right shift you can caps lock+apostrophe+letter
>>52636996 >good argument, but I'm from Flanders Belgium and couldn't care less about the french language Good for you, so use qwerty! But don't go labeling azerty as a shit layout just because it doesn't suit your needs. Belgium has two official languages so you need a suitable national keyboard layout.
>>52636945 >Did you forget we have two official languages? Go try typing a french letter/email on a qwerty, it's shite. As if I'm gonna bend over and ever submit to doing anything in french. If I have to email someone who speaks french, they're getting it in dutch, english or non-accentuated basic french. Fuck french and fuck this country's stupid shit like having THREE official languages (don't forget german)
>leaving your country and life for a keyboard layout My life's worth more than that, faggot
>>52637038 >being this pro-french and defending the baguettelords this hard Wow they really got to you
>>52636540 >tfw stupid university people tell me they "type in qwerty because it's faster to type in english that way" >tfw I explain them keyboard layouts were literally made to slow you down in your respective language so you wouldn't tangle the hammers on a typewriter >tfw they don't believe me every fucking time
if you can type blindly it doesn't matter whether if you use qwerty or azerty because you find what you need anyway
if you can't type blindly frankly you're not "tech-savvy" and should get good.
