And now for something completely different... Tech Spot have been looking at the many weird and wonderful keyboard layouts. It's surprisingly interesting!

Now let’s visit a galaxy far, far away from QWERTY. The Maltron keyboard looks uh.. unusual, but it’s designed with ergonomics in mind – so it might ease your aching hands and sore wrists. The keyboard is separated in chunks, with the numbers in the middle. The left-hand square of letters has ANISF for home row, and the right-hand square’s home row is DTHOR. The company behind this unusual keyboard, PCD Maltron, started in 1977 as a response to issues with the QWERTY layout and has found some fervent supporters.

That's very interesting. :) Didn't realise there were so many types.

And then, of course, there's Chinese, Japanese and all the other Asian languages. :D

I have enough trouble with a standard keyboard being dyslectic that one would just throw me into complete panic and confusion:confused::lol::user:
