dvorak, anyone?

this is probably an incredibly stupid idea, but i'm thinking of trying to use a dvorak keyboard layout. has anyone tried that? anyone using one right now?

I use dvorak. It took a week or two of default dvorak usage for me to get comfortable with it. I no longer resolve to qwerty.. unless it is a friend's computer.

For practice, I recommend

nearfar - I spent some time today playing with a Kinesis keyboard; and figured I'd also try switching to dvorak.
a) I got a ridiculous headache from trying
b) I found that using emacs with dvorak was just way to difficult because many of the keystrokes are muscle memory at this point.

Do you think it's really worth the switch?
