The comic is fun.
Is it supposed to be a parody of a Chick Comic
, or do they really want to convert people using Dvorak?
I'm no friend of Dvorak, just like I'm no friend of trackball or betamax. Taken from a German study for ergonomic typing
: There's no proof you type faster/more accurate using Dvorak. Numerous studies (DVORAK, 1943; BAST, 1958; BROWN et al., 1966; KLEMMER, 1971; MARTIN, 1972; ALDEN et al., 1972; KINKEAD, 1976; GAKIR, 1980) came up with minor or no difference in typing speed.
Also, Dvorak is optimized for English language. To overcome the illness of QWERTY in other languages, the keys need to be rearranged. It would be better to use a different keyboard layout, like Meier or Marsan, which is optimized for English/Spanish/German/French.
Anyway, too complicated... I stick with QUERTY/Z on an ergonomic keyboard.
In some years we'll all use computers the way Johnny Mnemonic
did and won't need keyboards anymore.
