    Do you think Colemak would be ideal for a Kinesis keyboard or would a layout designed for it be better, i.e. either Arensito or Maltron?  Thank you.

    Colemak has been designed to work well on both jagged keyboards and square layout keyboards like the Kinesis. Maltron is very good because it makes good use of the left thumb, but then you won't be able to use it anywhere else. Not being able to use the Maltron layout on a laptop is a major drawback.
