but with the wierd layout pictured

Hmm. Actually it's the non-weird -- i.e. very regular -- layout of the ortho keyboard that makes me think it might be annoying. It occurs to me that the stagger and the various sizes of key on an ordinary qwerty probably help with subconcious navigation & key-finding; a regular grid of keys doesn't have all those little location cues.

But no doubt I'd get used to it ... but probably only if I was forced to :-)
