How am I expected to work under these conditions?
I simulated this on software level.
I mean have you seen the area of responsibility for the right pinkie on a regular qwerty keyboard? https://www.futurity.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/colored-keys.jpg This design from 19th century is insanity, it’s not for humans. And controls are the worst for 10 fingers typing. Reminds me of this:
@BalooUriza @Tel 4 decades, that’s much. I only wonder how old are you (if that was literal)? Anyway, I was living with regular qwerty keyboards since I was a child, and the more time I had to spend with them the more I hated them. When you work all day in front of it you start to notice all the details of its imperfection that at some point starts to feel like demonic ugliness. That someone who designed it only wanted to hurt you, to give you pain. I’m happy that I’m done with this nightmare.
@unclechu @Tel The funny thing is they got Chicony of all people to clone a 104-key keyboard from IBM to brand as a WYSE board they sold with X terminals for a while, like up until a couple years ago even, and *those* are solidly acceptable boards. Good feel, decent layout, nothing spectacular, but nothing to complain about.
@Tel Every cat who let me live in her home suffered from keyboard-envy. Lucky if she doesn't mark it as *her* territory .... like all mine did ...😭
