    Today is Good Friday 2017 and I feel like I've been crucified.  After forty+ years of typing on a Dvorak keyboard I made the decision to start typing in Colemak beginning with this post. Needless to say it is hard.  But, it is for a greater cause; creating the kingdom of heaven.

    The first thing that you probably noticed about me was my user name: Jesus.  I am known around the world, especially to millions of Howard Stern fans, as Black Jesus for having broken into Ronald Reagan's retirement home on July Fourth of 1990.  Ronald Reagan was/is the Antichrist.  I am the second coming of Christ.  Whether you believe me or not is not important.  The important thing is that my story makes for great press, television and radio feature stories.  Changing the world's keyboards from QWERTY to Colemak is a goal that I've set for myself.

    The first thing that I did when I joined this forum was to do a search for the word economics.  It came back with zero results.  Then I did a search for the word economic.  That search returned four results.  At that point I knew that with your help this is going to be easy.  The macro economics of changing the world's keyboards from QWERTY to Colemak, especially via Tarmak, are so skewed in its favor that it is a no-brainer.  My job is to present those figures to the world at large in a manner that makes sense.

    But economics is simply the benefit for switching.  I'm playing hardball.  The reason that we will switch is because at this point in time IT IS A CRIME (Tort) TO TEACH SOMEONE TO TOUCH TYPE IN QWERTY.  This is not wishful thinking.  A look at the Maltron keyboard legal section will point out the reasons.  In fact, were it not for the Kinesis Advantage keyboard option for Colemak, along with Tarmak and the ridiculously needless high price I would throw my weight behind Maltron.

    All things considered Colemak is the way to go.  It won't take a miracle but it will create one.  Imagine a world where everything is done faster. without injury to the worker all at a negative cost. (We are losing trillions of dollars every year as a direct cost of QWERTY.)  Sound Heavenly?  It Is.  The Colemak keyboard truly does contain the keys of kingdom of Heaven.

    Just when I discover Jesus does Dvorak, he levitates towards Colemak!

    What say you try Colemak before getting behind it?

    I am not into Colemak to benefit myself.  I am in it for the masses.  The underlying economics behind switching from QWERTY to Dvorak or QWERTY to Colemak are basically the same.  It is in the making of the actual changeover for everyone where Tarmak makes all the difference.

    I think there's economy in changing fewer keys (as long as their placement is adequate in the first place), as it leads to fewer/shorter transition steps. It's been debated, but I also believe that relearning the whole layout at once is easier with the QWERTY → Colemak transition vs QWERTY → Dvorak. So I disagree that the underlying economics of the two switches are basically the same. As far as hardware is concerned, sure, but brainware is more expensive anyways these days.
