just curious if anyone out there is using the dvorak keyboard layout, I've just switched to it (no real reason) and it's like learning to type all over again :D

There's info available here: http://www.mwbrooks.com/dvorak/

Basically it comes down to the fact that your fingers travel a much smaller distance when using this layout, so when mastered to the same level that most of us know qwerty, you can acheive a much higher WPM (Words Per Minute) typing rate.
As (it appears) we're all used to qwerty then it just seems strange :)

Would be a pain to get used to it then have to go back to qwerty ever time you use a different computer! :)

Become a Dvorak Pro then see if your typing speed goes up.
Thats what I've done, spent 5 mins shifting my keys earlier :)
I'd honetly be interested in trying to properly learn it, but as you say, no one else uses it, I'll probably be back to qwerty sometime over the week end.
