Right, so I've been messing around with Colemak-DHk for a while (Just saw the revision), and I find the curl mod very comfortable. Now my only gripe is with the j key on the right, which is quite far for the Index finger to reach. Now considering that there are split keyboards out there, why hasn't there been a design that just mirrors the left section of the board? I.E, flip the left section of the curl mod to the right side? Just to clarify, I'm talking about the ISO version of the curl mod
If this is done, the j key would be in an arguably more accessible place than it is now, albiet the keyboard won't look nice if it is put together, and a custom layout may be less accessible. But this kind of staggered layout should provide the most ease of reachability even for qwerty users (well, the b position in qwerty is.... not ideal to say the least, but the y in qwerty could be fixed with this).
I'm surprised that I haven't seen anyone attempt at this even when building a new concept for a board? Since for boards like the matrix and the alice still have these keys in a layout that somewhat needs stretching. Just a thought thou... XDXD
