>I'm still unable to understand how this is going to help me

I sometimes consider changing layouts but it all comes back to that one simple statement. I don't touch type and I still hit the 120 WPM sweetspot on QWERTY - but I feel that any benefit of Dvorak/Colemak would be wasted if I didn't also learn to touch type.

I fear it would be a lot of work for no discernible benefit other than geek cred.




"I don't touch type" and "I still hit the 120 WPM sweetspot" does not compute.

One side benefit is that no one can shoulder surf your password.

Security through obscurity is not the best of strategies. If someone notices your shoulder surfed password doesn't work with qwerty, it's a trivial step to try it on dvorak/colemak.

If they know to try that, they deserve access to my gmail account. :-)
