Re: Origin of each country's QWERTY keyboard layout?

[…] Indeed. Plenty of the "old" layouts still have the non-combining versions for reasons that were defensible "back in the day", but not anymore... and the layouts don't ever get revised.

Re: Let's make the worst layout ever!

The old typematrix was cheaply made and there were some questionable choices made regarding stabilizers, but the layout is fairly decent for touch typing. In particular, the claim that "hands are still in the same position" and there's "no ergonomic benefit" is just plain wrong, and your whole rant...

Obviously the difference between depletedvespene and me is that he doesn't speak French while I have been typing French texts on an AZERTY keyboard on a daily basis for, hem, decades.

You could opt for the Cherry G81-8308, which has a standard layout plus 24 programmable keys, but it is somewhat limited in scope as you can only program strokes from keys which the keyboard itself has, and above all - it has crappy MY switches. What you are looking for is clearly Tipro. Tipro is a ...
