    Tried to learn dvorak, but I ran into a string of hardcore hours for work. Hence my keyboards are all still qwerty.

    Someday though....

    Azerty.

    Dvorak looks like Korean keyboard : vowels on the left side and consonants on the right side.
    Korean use alternatively consonants and vowels, so this is one time the right hand, then the left, then right one, and so on.
    It seems (from what I read) that Dvorak is based on this system to speed up and to type comfortably.

    Korean might have good keyboard then.

    QWERTY, that's the standard. Why would someone want to use any other keyboard layout?

    Uhh... Because they speak another language and need some other characters for it?

    I use QWERTY myself though.

    Because in Europe there are letters with accents, hence the need for an Azerty keyboard.

    We just have different keys mapped to the scan codes but the keyboard layout is the same.

    Why would somebody wanna use a dvorak layout anyways? Far from standard nowadays.

    My keyboard has accents and it's a QWERTY, it's more of a national thing seeing as they're almost the same with only minor changes.
