This could be a serious problem, and one that's not going to go away easily:
Try googleing Colemak
Look at the second result:

Guess what their resoning is?

This is an article on a keyboard layout first released this year. I have doubts as to its notability. Wikipedia doesn't have any guidelines on notability for keyboard layouts, but if the other articles in Category:Keyboard layouts are taken as representative of notable layouts, then Colemak is clearly the odd one out. I'm not aware of any published studies on the Colemak layout in the ergonomics and HCI literature; the author's own web page seems to be the only significant source of information on it.
* Delete. This keyboard layout is less than a year old, and has not had sufficient time to have been the subject of studies or serious reviews. If it takes the world by storm (which, unfortunately, is not likely to happen), the article can always be recreated.
* Delete, as per previous posters. I originally created the article earlier, around when it was first released. It made a slashdot mention, so I decided why not. It certainly hasn't become what the author hoped.
* Keep. Already there are 60 000+ hits on Google for Colemak. The fact that it is a fairly new product does not detract from the usefulness of the information about the product. Or: how about merging this article's content into a subsection of the wiki article Keyboard_layout?l

This is both an insult and a plain defamation of the Colemak layout!
As if having 14 sections of the different placement of symbols in random counties is any more NOTABLE. Each of these 14 QWERTY layout sections only show the minor, unimportant changes in the placement of useless symbols.
Who cares about a Belgian version?
All letters remain the same as on the French keyboard, but some signs (? ! @ - _ + = §) are on different locations.
Wow... How very notable
Lack of Proof?
They deleted this article about a year ago. Alot has changed since then.
04-Jan-2007: Colemak wins CAPSoff's keyboard design competition
25-Dec-2006: David Piepgrass writes a research paper "Why QWERTY, And What's Better?" (PDF).
“All things considered, I believe Colemak is better than Dvorak and the best alternative to QWERTY.”
LETS PROVE THEM WRONG!
We should all compile a very short, convincing, interesting, and factual (with references), article which we will append to this wiki article:
