I recently heard about a keyboard layout that is faster and more efficient than the standard layout I have always used. I also heard that the standard we use was invented to SLOW you down, because typewriters had arms that would strike a paper, and if you typed too fast, they would get jammed up. So I printed the Dvorak layout, and rearranged the keys on my keyboard and laptop. Telling my Ubuntu Linux to switch between the Dvorak and standard layouts was very easy, unlike on Windows XP. I've been using Dvorak for a couple weeks now. I'm using it right now! Once you learn it, it's really easy. Dad thinks I'm nuts. It's just my newest Obsession! :D
