For a dissenting opinion (maybe slightly biased, but it does give
another side to the story):


Interestingly, he mentions some situations where it might not be
convenient to switch:

- If you move from computer to computer all day.
- If you program in un-English languages like Unix shell commands.
- If you depend on software's keyboard commands (as in vi or emacs) that
you know by their positions, not their letters.

I wonder about that one.  I use vi quite a bit.  How hard would it be to
switch to using vi with a Dvorak layout?  Any experience here?
