Alien keystroke acclimation

Contributed by: Heow Eide-Goodman
This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

If you just came from the Windows (or non-Mac/BeOS) world and are confused about having to re-learn all those ‘standard’ keystrokes… I can’t help you.

BUT — you can turn the liability into an asset by also learning the Dvorak keyboard! The Dvorak keymap is built right-into BeOS — just select it in the Keymap preferences panel (or buy a dedicated Dvorak keyboard). Your fingers will thank you.

For more information, start at Yahoo!’s Dvorak Keyboard Resources.
