When I was young I sometimes thought of becoming a monk. Now I know this is not my path... simply because it is too social. I need more time for myself.

This week I am going to eat my own dog food and use the keyboard layout which I designed myself. It's not finished, but good enough to start collecting real life experience on it.
PS: it is mainly optimised for German and also has a German name: die gemütliche Tastatur.

Nice chart, but personally I think the entire left half of the pack is unhealthy and only the right half is healthy. Traditional keyboards (including so-called ergonomic ones) have too many too important keys under the right pinky. Weakest and shortest finger does too much work and the long and strong index finger do too little! I'll buy myself some healthy change.

Ordinary keyboard. Works fine for me and even did when I was typing a lot more than now ;) Maybe my hands are not ergonomic.
Learning Neo was fine for me, since I've never learned a different layout before.

Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery. The only real thing is the present moment, here and now.

Better do one small good thing than debate a lot of big good things.

Hey Xah and other keyboard-experts! I am looking for a keyboard where I can reach all keys without taking the hands of their base positions and where important stuff like ENTER, backspace, SHIFT is hit by one of the big fingers, not the smallest one. What can you recommend?
