My coworker who quit had one of these monstrous split keyboards on his desk, and I thought I'd give it a shot because it at least has real keys instead of chiclets, but nope. Not happening. I type B with my right hand and Y with my left, and that's just the way it's going to be

@matt I learned proper typing form by switching to Dvorak. If I hadn't done that I'm sure I'd still be using the terrible hand posture I taught myself when I was 12

@mogwai_poet my hand posture doesn't really cause any issues for me other than needing to stick with traditional keyboard shape. The chiclets don't cause me pain or discomfort, they're just so unsatisfying to type on. I never thought I'd be yearning for the tactile squish of a rubber dome keyboard
