Can someone run Carpalx analysis to the above layout?
Within its constraints, it scores as well as it could; much better than Qwerty, almost as good as Dvorak, but not as good as Colemak, of course. ;-)
Total effort: 2.122 (vs. qwerty: 3.000, dvorak: 2.098, colemak: 1.842).
Effort contributions: base 0.491, penalties 0.743 (0.217 row, 0.408 finger), path: 0.889.
Row distributions: 18.2% top, 67.1% home and 14.7% bottom, which is a vast improvement over qwerty with 51.0% top and 34.3% home.
But dvorak and colemak have 70.8% and 75.0% home row, respectively.
Hand and finger distributions obviously do not change wrt. Qwerty. With 57.6% vs 42.4%, it still prefers the left hand too much.
Weak same hand/same finger scores are also inherited, but same-hand row jumps are somewhat reduced: 24.5%, halfway between qwerty: 31.9% and colemak: 17.4% or dvorak: 15.6%.
