Dvorak spouses
Authored by: tjnugent on May 26, '05 05:14:23PM

The scary (as in "too geeky" scary) story is in how my wife and I found out each other used Dvorak.

We were both in grad school (~late 1996), and had just started dating. One night, we were using the Unix "talk" program (sort of like a real-time IM) to chat while at different ends of campus. I happened to notice that the typos (and deletions) she made were ones you'd see if you were using Dvorak instead of Qwerty. I pointed it out, and she admitted she'd started on Dvorak when teaching herself to type in college.

Now, after 6 years of marriage, we're happy that our household is Dvorak only. Except, of course, when parents or visitors come over and want to use a computer...
