Ditto.

There is no way I could "un-learn" QWERTY or become as proficient. Thank you 9th grade business class!

Why would I adopt a 'standard', get used to it and then every other place I go struggle with the global standard?   Wink

You can just make a script that remaps a QWERTY to Dvorak then run it off a flash drive when you're on other PC's. Grin

I'll bite. It probably wouldn't be that hard but.....

At this stage in the game it seems it would be a great waste of time. The "return on investment" just wouldn't be there. As far as learning new tricks, this is waaaay down the list.

If those keys were set up per QWERTY it would be no different to me from the one I use today so sure, I'd try one. I'm from the era where typing was taught in school. I learned "home row" and how to type with all 10 fingers.  Grin

There are some women in Blader's secretarial pool that I would put to shame.  Shocked

I would love to install one of those at work for one of my guys. He types with 2 fingers. The index finger on his left hand only hits the a key. The index finger on his right hand does all the rest. He would be absolutely lost!
