  1. For those of you who don't know, it's an alternative keyboard layout that is supposedly more efficient than the QWERTY layout. I do not have any particular reason to learn it, but am curious to see if I can while retaining my QWERTY typing ability. I have been at it for a few hours in total so far, and am making decent progress, although almost all of my mistakes are from hitting the right QWERTY key instead of the Dvorak key.

    Does anyone else know how to type in Dvorak? If so, can you switch between QWERTY and Dvorak with relative ease? Unfortunately I have a lot of catching up to do if I want to be able to type at least as fast in Dvorak:
