Learning Colemak

I’ve been practicing typing.

Due to the fact I never really mastered touch typing with QWERTY, I decided to finally learn with the newer, better keyboard layout: Colemak. Here is a link to a page where you too can change to Colemak for free. It’s easy with Windows 8. It can’t be much harder with other operating systems.

The web page explains the pros of switching, so I won’t go into that here. I always thought that if you wanted a new keyboard layout you had to get a new keyboard, but it is actually better to keep your old keyboard so you are forced to learn the new layout without looking.

With about a week or two of practice you can switch to a healthier writing life.
