My System Specs

Default Dvorak Keyboards?

Anybody know where I can get one? Preferably cheap, since I'm not going to use it all the time, and it's just for fun.

I'm too cheap to buy a whole new keyboard so I'm just hunting down some transparent stickers that I can use to overlay. Tried redoing my keys, that was a fiasco with some sideways letters. Too uncomfortable. Epic fail. LOL

Thanks for the links DK. I ended up grabbing a cheaper slim keyboard from NCIX that has the scissor keyswitch keys like a notebook keyboard. Nice and easy to pop off and switch around.

I just thought I would fire this pic up quick. 5 minutes of work on a $30 keyboard, much cheaper than all the online stores I found.

LOL I just did that because I'm happier with this size. My old MS keyboard took up so much rrm it quickly became a hindrance.

Problem with dvorak is the stats aren't the same depending on languages, so the layout isn't the same. Sucks when you're canadian and you switch between french and english keyboard layout on a regular basis. For me, i have vietnamese and russian on top of that, so even if qwerty is a stupid concept (except russian is evidently not qwerty, but the layout is pretty good as it is), it's just the standard now.
