I've been using colemak since Monday (7/30/2007). On day four I'm already feeling really comfortable with the layout. I'm a touch typist and I program computers for a living (.net framework, C#). I've been coming to the site since early July and decided to switch cold turkey on monday (made the decision friday afternoon at work). I've used nothing but colemak since monday. I feel like every day typing has gotten easier and speed has definitely improved. My old qwerty speed was around 60 wpm. Right now i'm around 22 wpm + 14% error rate on lesson 12 (only tried it once). I've been going through the lessons sequentially and moving on once I reach 30 wpm + 4 % error rate. Pretty much following all the advice I've seen on the site. That puts me on lesson 4 right as of right now. I find it kind of cool to be one of the early adopters of this layout (probably < 1000 adopters).
