Hello everyone! Is anyone touch-typing in Colemak? I'm currently using the layout, and I must say, it's not too shabby. I've touch-typed on QWERTY and Dvorak before. I definitely recommend to stop using QWERTY, as it's very inefficient.

For existing QWERTY users who are thinking about switching keyboard layouts, I definitely recommend Colemak. The website is http://colemak.com. Enjoy!

Hello, Plionke! It's me Golden_Hammer from the forums. I guess you can say I'm one of Colemak's biggest advocate now, lol. ^_^

Interesting... something halfway between the unfamiliarity of dvorak and the inefficiency of qwerty.

I'm not sure I believe the site, though. They're obviously advertising their own agenda one-sidedly.

If it weren't so obscure, I might actually try it.

Well, I don't know. I read the same thing as you did, and that was enough to make me switch, and I was already typing with Dvorak. Also, I've already taken the liberty of copying and pasting a few wikipedia articles to the Java compare applet, which you can view here... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v206/Saiaku_Akuma/comparison.jpg

Unlike Dvorak, Coleman actually uses the home row 70% of the time.
