How bad is QWERTY, really? A review of the literature, such as it is

Article note: That's a neat little survey. I'm more interested in physically-different keyboards than remaps for marginal RSI gains at great retraining cost, but there's a lot of neat stuff covered. I hadn't seen the QWYRFM layout before, it's interesting how much it has in common with the old Blickensderfer DHIATENSOR layout from the late 1800s - I guess relative letter frequencies in English and relative finger strength are stable phenomena so it shouldn't be surprising.
