My colleague, Jerry Bates, on going Colemak turkey:
I have now been typing on Colemak “cold turkey” for about a week now, and I am here to say that I am more than surviving. In fact, I have been doing just fine. Granted, I am still typing rather slowly and cautiously, and need to “peek” from time to time, but for the most part I am touch-typing without issue, and getting faster every day. And that is after just a week!
