Re: Innovation is essential

"It's the same reason that keeps me from trying those ergonomic, split-in-half keyboards with that entirely different layout. Or the Dvorak layout. I just can't be bothered to spend a few years getting used to an entirely new key disposition."

The other show stopper for me is that I use more than one keyboard. Work laptop, home desktop and laptop, and all the other devices with standard QWERTY layouts. It can be bad enough at times just switching between standard layout keyboards with different pitch and rake, or flat laptop and raked, full key travel desktop. Not to mention the different layouts of "special" keys.
