QWERTY was intended to sabotage the typists' speed,
to reduce key jams.
Ah, David, wouldn't reducing key jams increase the typist's speed?
You're not technically incorrect you just represent it wrong - QWERTY was meant to overcome insufficiencies in the mechanics of the early typewriter.
Nevertheless it's a good point. As a touch typist I've never even thought about using the Dvorak keyboard, it might be inefficient but it's what I'm used to. AH HA! that's why the USA is still using imperial measurements (rebelled against british imperial rule, but kept their bizarre system of measurements).
Hey, you may not know this but: type
