After years of deliberation, I’m finally taking this Thanksgiving break to switch to the Dvorak keyboard layout. It’s been frustrating, yes, but I believe my wrists will be much better off with the change. Within a couple hours of switching I’m probably crawling at ~15 words per minute, which is faster than I expected. Stuff that still throws me off due to being permanently etched in muscle memory..
- My name.
- `cd` and my custom `ls` aliases.
- . (period)
- Common commands such as cut/copy/paste, closing and opening files etc.
- The letter ‘o’ for some reason.
Ohh, and I switched my command and caps lock keys too, so my brain is a tad bit overloaded at the moment 🙂
