Three typing tutors and a boy

Learning the Dvorak layout is great Marcel. I use it myself (my friends can't stand coming over and using my computers). But, even as a fan, I must say, the hardest part is going somewhere else and having to set up a new layout every time, switching from QWERTY to Dvorak and back again when you're finished, or like me you just adapt to both. Both ways are a bit of a nuisance.

Sadly, the world adopted QWERTY like they did Microsoft. Asking myself why? I find that a topic for the pub. So I won't. Even though I just did. :)

When I visit a client to work on their computers, I switch layouts. I've forgotten to switch back sometimes. lol. That always ends up with an interesting phone call 10 minutes after I leave.

I would be nice if Dvorak was taught from school, but with the rest of the world using QWERTY, the Education system collectively (world wide) won't be changing over any time soon. Sadly. :(
