Alternate keyboard layoutsEdit

Created , updated

On several occasions I’ve toyed with the idea of learning a new keyboard layout — first, out of an interest for speed; and second, out of a desire to reduce wrist pain and the risk of RSI as I grow older — but each time the fear that learning how to be productive in Vim with the new layout (especially with the h/j/k/l keys, which are remembered positionally rather than mnemonically) has held me back.

Below are what appear to be the main rivals.

Dvorak

Colemak

Workman

Norman

Minimak
