Others can use my setup.

I learned to type on a qwerty keyboard when I was about eleven years old, and I can type without error at 80 wpm, or more on a good day. I see no reason to relearn the keyboard.

Never heard of DVORAK until this point. After looking at it with a Google search... Seems like it's only real purpose for people to use this in the modern day is to be "edgy"(Or because they prefer it, but I doubt that's majority of people). Just like choosing Linux as a home computers OS(Same as the prior).

In wiki it seems fine in theory. However looking at it seems just plain strange.

Damn. If you have a mechanical keyboard I'd love to hear all that clicking, lol.

Of course I use a mechanical keyboard. What other kind is there? (unless you mean the decorative one that they put on the bottom half of a laptop so it won't be all blank)
