I have been using the Dvorak keyboard layout since out of army. It took me months for me to attain my previous typing speed of the Qwerty layout. From that point on, I never looked back as the Dvorak layout was simply very comfortable to type on. I can attest to the fact that my fingers leave the home row much lesser. I came across this Programmer Dvorak layout created by an IT professional Roland Kaufmann.
