I've coming back to trying out colemak after a year or so. I gave it a bit of effort (~20wpm) last year and eventually gave up because I was switching computers a lot at work. The main "why bother" reasoning a lot of people succumb to got me. But I have the perfect response now! Why bother? Who cares? Why not?
(A lot of people complain that "their brains" have a hard time switching between the two. There's a lot of interesting research on brain plasticity that basically proves that paradigm shifting like that is possible for everyone, it just takes practice. The more you switch between qwerty and colemak, the better you'll get at it.)
Anyway - the point of my post. My main frustration with Colmak is the S key. Why is it moved??? It seems so needless, and it's the key I have the most trouble with. The rest of the keys make sense to me, but that damn S... Why isn't the R where the S is (ASRT instead of ARST)?
