Dvorak - Why I use it

Before I write my first "real" post about game programming and all, I have to confess a little detail that might surprise you: There are actually People using the (in-)famous DVORAK Keyboard Layout.

I use it for 3 years now and I'm really happy about it. It started out as a way to learn touch typing (Because I really couldn't type at all before that) and I thought it would be easier to learn touch typing with a completely new layout where you couldn't rely on your old habits.
That, and I was convinced about the Idea that you don't have to move your fingers as much with the Dvorak layout (because all the vowels are on the lift home-row and the most used consonants are on the right side).
