Why don't you use superior Dvorak keyboard layout, /g/?
>>
>>51453029
Dvorak is the /gentoo/ of keyboards
>>
I am using it, no it's not really faster.
But it's much easier to program with coming from QWERTZ. No idea about QWERTY.
>>
>>51453029
Because I'm not an hipster faggot
>>
>>51453029
how would you go against muscle memory? I've been using QWERTY forever.
>>
>>51453029
because I've been using QWERTY/QWERTZ for 30 years
>>
I used dvorak for a long time, but I began to hate it when I started using vim heavily.
>>
I haven't used a non qwerty and am interested in different layouts; has anyone used a colemak before? I read some article that was comparing the speed of layouts and for typing in english there was some other layout that was much faster than everything else I can't remember what it was called....
>>
have fun manually editing the hotkeys of every single application, if you're lucky and it's allowed in-app.
>>
>>51453029
Tried it, didn't like it. I don't think the keyboard layout is really important for programming, unless you write a million lines of code per minute like in the TV shows.
>>
>>51453201
this is quite an annoyance.

though I could solve it with a simple autohotkey script which remap ctrl-c/v/x for me.
Didn't have any problem with other hotkeys yet.
>>
>>51453234
well I tried to switch but the fuckery for setting up Eclipse was just too much, besides on whatever linux distro I was using at the time(probablu 'buntu) the key remap was glitched as hell and would ignore keys randomly. Not worth the trouble really. also this >>51453204
>>
Colemak is arguably the funner layout
>>
>>51453029
Because I use colemak.
>>
Because it isn't superior.
>>
>>51453029
Because my typing speed isn't so fast that the keyboard layout is the limiting factor.

I don't feel an irrational need to be different from others
>>
>>51454632
I was kidding, anon. It's dvorak for people with no right hand.
>>
>>51454598
Holy fuck, I've seen retarded keyboards but this is the greatest one.
>>
>>51454580
So fucking what? Dvorak is a "balanced" layout. It uses both hands equally. That's entirely the point of it.
>>
>>51456945
>spent whole life trained to do QWERTY, which works fine
>then comes Jamal on 4chan and says that I should use DVORAK because
>muh balance
Fuck you, Jamal.
>>
why would i go against pure muscle memory.
>>
I've tried colemak before, it was decent when I tried it but I happened to switch at a time where everyone uncharacteristically wanted to talk to me so I kept on having to switch back to qwerty to type faster than 25-30wpm

I want to learn again but I'll probably use a fully optimised layout from carpalx rather than colemak, being a uk fag not having uk colemak layouts on most systems is enough of a problem where I won't feel bad using a fully optimised layout

Because I use Colemak which is superior to both QWERTY and Dvorak.

I already type quickly enough (130 wpm), it would take a lot of time and effort to reprogramme my muscle memory, and it would be a hassle fighting against the heavily entrenched default at every turn. Overall, not worth it.

NO SIR I DONT LIKE IT
>>
>>51453196
That is dvorak. It only speeds things up by about 4%, which for most people is only three words faster than normal. It also takes about a month to ease into it coming from qwerty that it's kind of pointless
>>
I used it for about five months. It was really nice and I preferred it to qwerty, but it wasn't worth using a non standard keyboard layout.
>>
I do, using it for half a year because I messed up some finger tendons from playing the piano too much. Think I'll be sticking it it for the foreseeable future, it's pretty allright.
>>
Because I am neurotypical. Why would I get used to this only to have keyboards literally everywhere else still on QWERTY?

Because I don't type nearly enough to get any benefits from it even it WAS better/faster/whatever then QWERTY.
