[REBOL] Rebol Tech, please answer. Two questions. Re:(8)

From: rishi:picostar at: 12-Sep-2000 14:07

while we are on the subject of dvorak.... For those who don't know, dvorak is an alternate and superior keyboard layout than qwerty. Qwerty was actually designed to slow down the typist (solution to problem of early type writers jamming) by spreading commonly used keys away from the home row. The guy who invented dvorak, Dr. Dvorak, spent half his life or so doing it... It places most commonly used keys close to home and balances load between left and right hands equally. While debatable, I find it faster, more accurate, and definately more comfortable on my hands (all my hand pain from using keyboards went away after switching to dvorak). And you don't need to by new keyboard. Most OS's (including beos, windows, macos, amiga, etc...) have option built into setting to allow you to remap keyboard to dvorak. anyway, here is a dvorak url if anyone is interested : It works really well with rebol... (hey, if i was in a dvorak message board or qnx discussion board and the topic of programming languages came up...I would definately give REBOL a plug!) Rishi
