Philosophical Multicore

Sometimes controversial, sometimes fallacious, sometimes thought-provoking, and always fun.

As you may know, I learned Dvorak 6 months ago. But after substantial research, I have decided to learn Colemak.

Colemak was designed to be easy to learn for people coming from QWERTY: Many keys remain in the same position. After doing a lot of research, I would have to say that this is THE best layout (but it isn’t perfect). I have only been using it for 3 days, and am already at 20 words per minute, compared to 65 on Dvorak after 6 months and 75 on QWERTY after 8 years.

Go learn Colemak. Now.
