Today is Dvorak Day!
Okay… technically, it was yesterday. But I didn’t know until today, so celebrate now like it’s 1932!!! (Which was when, on May 21st, Dvorak first patented his simplified keyboard layout.) And so, in celebration, I’ve used a slow day at work to liberate my own keyboard and bring it around to the Dvorak way.
“Dvorak” is short for The Dvorak Simplified Keyboard Layout. The standard keyboard layout that most people use (QWERTY) was developed to overcome mechanical problems on the original typewriter almost 150 years ago – mechanical problems that no longer exist! In 1932 Professor August Dvorak scientifically designed an improved keyboard layout based on research and logic.” –from DVzine.org
