    It abandons the 'QWERTY' layout. Read about it here:

    yeah, and the norwegian layout is a bit different from the US one, so here is a pic:



    you can see it misses like the sentance "QWERTY" on the top etc

    I'd always wondered about it. When you read some of the stuff on that link, you wonder why you would use qwerty (although i've never typed a word in dvorak).
    I do often find it hard to get all words right while typing, and I can touch type, but it just sucks

    qwerty was designed to slow typists down. Back when typewriters had strikers that struck the page it was common with a quick typist to jam the typewriter, so along comes qwerty to slow people down.
