NEO

NEO is a keyboard layout optimized for typing speed in german, english and programming.

Experience

I’m trying to learn the NEO keyboard layout now. I’m terribly slow with it. Its really hard to relearn everything. I hope it pays back.

What’s strange is that the shortcuts (Ctrl-S, Win-R, ... ) are still at the same place. Some application, like the remote desktop or Microsoft Word, don’t respect the layout and send the Keycodes directly. They can’t be blamed.

What Word does is really strange. It checks where the keys are and sets the keycodes by that. so save is now at Ctrl-H, Select all at Ctrl-D and so on ... This is really strange!
