Taking Geek to the next level

Posted in Linux, ubuntu by microwavebiscuit on April 16, 2007

I’ve decided that I’m going to try reconfiguring my keyboard for Dvorak style. I read some interesting stuff here: http://dvzine.org/ about using Dvorak as in input method. My Qwerty typing is reasonably good (40+ wpm) but I don’t think I ever really learned to type as well as I could have. I recently started messing around with a few typing tutors for Linux (more in another post) and the one that I’m really liking is klavaro which supports Dvorak input. I think that if I take the time to learn it and learn it correctly using a tutor it might be beneficial. After I get a little proficient with it I might even get one of those Das Keyboards with the keys all black. I really don’t think it could get much geek-ier than that. Plus, with blank keys and Dvorak input, it’d almost be like encrypting the keyboard!
