  • Why would someone do that to themselves?

    Why would Windows 10 do that to me 🙂



  • Oh, Windows just changed it? What the crap. LOL

    Reboot. Issue still exists.

    This has been a good test of trying to use Windows without a keyboard, not a good experience being unable to search. Nothing is available to click.

    I actually had to phone others and ask "What did you do to my machine" as it's on the domain 🙂

    What would CLI users do in this situation 🙂 Without remoting into the machine and fixing it.

    It's useless. That's why Windows for tablet or phone is so crazy. Windows 7 was better for that than anything since. They are moving in the wrong direction.

    I know a couple people that love the dvorak layout. They have completely retrained themselves and find it hard to use a qwerty layout.

    Were they heavily proficient on traditional before switching? How fast and efficient are they afterwards?

    They both switched as adults, so they were proficient with qwerty.

    One of them did measure his progress over time and he did become faster at Dvorak eventually.

    One of the big issues with that is moving between devices. How do you get Dvorak laptops? You need it at every office. It's a rare person with enough control to never have to go back to other keyboards. If you never had to switch bad, maybe with enough time you could convert. But most of us would have to go back and forth all the time.

    Well this was in 2005 and the proliferation of devices was not as prevalent for typical users.



  • How did a 19th century composer get a keyboard layout?

    You're probably kidding but it turns out that it isn't named after him but someone else, which is why the name isn't exactly the same (different accent marks.) I thought that too until recently, someone schooled me on that.



  • @scottalanmiller I was kidding, I figured Dvorak was a fairly common Czech name, but I really had no idea after whom it was named.



  • I'll always throw in a composer joke when I can.



  • @Breffni-Potter I tried to learn this for a few months and was good enough that I could manage on std querty's without having to stick a bunch these on unless it came to using non-letter/number characters. Had it on all my phones and computers at home/work. The wife and kids loved it though when they went to use the computers in the house and started typing jibberish.
