So it’s been about five weeks now since I switched to Dvorak at home. I’m up to 56 WPM now, at 82% accuracy. I’m not going to bother posting any more updates on this topic – the remaining speed and accuracy will require many hours of instant messaging to develop, as did my QWERTY skills when I was first really learning that layout. Switching back and forth between the two layouts is now nearly painless – I have a minute of confusion or so, and then my brain is fine again.
All in all, it’s been a fun time and I have a new skill now. Definitely worth it.
