Dvorak keyboard now available for Windows and Mac

The Dvorak keyboard was designed in the 1930s by August Dvorak, a professor of education, and his brother-in-law, William Dealy. Unlike the traditional QWERTY keyboard, the Dvorak keyboard is designed so that the middle row of keys includes the most common letters. In addition, common letter combinations are positioned in such a way that they can be typed quickly.
It has been estimated that in an average eight-hour day, a typist's hands travel 16 miles on a QWERTY keyboard, but only 1 mile on a Dvorak keyboard.
Of course this person has to do other work outs because with this keyboard the user does burn 417 calories less a day.

There has been since years print outs available to modify the normal keyboard, however you can buy the keyboard now for $100. See original post at news.yahoo
