    Hi guys and gals

    I've been practicing colemak for about a week, and since saturday I'm only using colemak.
    The question that brought me here, and aroused my curiosity, is about the key S.

    Why did S move to the D?
    (comparing to QWERTY)

    This seems to be my biggest struggle and doesn't look like a big deal, but I don't know.

    You will see that S was moved by purpose if you keep using Colemak for longer time.
    I believe that most of confusion of the new S position comes from Ctrl-S shortcut engraved in everybody's mind. :)

    I actually searched and didn't found anything, maybe I searched the wrong terms.
    Sorry for that.

    Yes, I still mistake the Ctrl + S. But in my case might be more severe, since I really swap both.
    This will probably be fixed with time.

    Thanks davkol and ckofy for the replies.
