Back in the old typewriter days, there was a logical reason for the keyboard layout.

Yeah i get that,
but why can't i make my own layout?
it's all software,
it can't be hard,
yet no one thought of it but me?

(*sigh*)
why does a software keyboard (or any modern physical keyboard )
have to stay with the QWERTY layout?

why can't my keyboard be ABCDEF ... in order?


(i don't know how to simplify this further for you,
without smacking your face with a keyboard)

There are a couple different primary layouts you can get keyboards in, but the reason QWERTY is the one everyone uses is because it puts the letters you will use the most under your fingers if you type correctly.

yessss. on a TYPEWRITER (<<--- notice emphasis)
the keys are arranged that way so the hammers wouldn't get caught while typing;
i knew that when i was a newborn;

now, WHY can't I (me me me) have my iPad with it's software keyboard (not physical keyboard)
have the letters in a l p h a b e t i c a l order?
(or, any order I wish?)
THAT is what I (me, myself, I, moi) am asking YOUR FACE

WHY do the keys (i am typing this slower, so you un-der-stand it) need to be in the QWERTY layout TO-DAYYYY?
(on a modern hardware &/software key-board)??


& no, it doesn't, put them under my fingers to be used most, since i only type with my right pointer finger on my phone/iPad
(or both thumbs, TBH)

I see non-qwerty keyboards on some things; Garmin GPS (although now everyone just uses their phone), some smart TV's, etc. Android seems more open to different keyboards. I am surprised there is not an ABCDEF keyboard for that OS. Make one for iOS....maybe you'll make money.

Short answer: Everyone who writes software learns on the QWERTY keyboard, so no one really sees the need to change it. By the time you know enough to write the code, you are already used to QWERY.

well, i would think a customizable software keyboard would be popular (especially with non-English people)
why there are so few/none just befuddles me no end...
sorry, I'm not old & lazy.
I believe in science, technology & making things better,
but that's my Canadian half HAHA


MAYBE there are some in Asia (?) i dunno. I'm ignorant AF)

& Luke Perry died @ age 52 #SadBananas : (

I'm not much older than you claim to be.

If you're typing with 2 fingers, it's not the same as proper form using a keyboard. Even if you use the predictive text, I can probably type faster than you by using the keyboard. Typewriter or not, QWERTY is the best solution that's come across so far.
