I bought a used Model 01 a few months ago. I totally fell in love with it! Especially the arrow keys on the same keys as Vim! (I’m a Vim user who never learnt the ‘hjkl’ arrow keys).
But in reality, I’ve been finding it hard to get used to. My previous keyboard was a Kineses Advantage, which I’d had for 2-3 months, and was starting to feel fluent with it. However, in the same amount of time, I feel less fluent and more frustrated with the Mode 01. I tried a couple of typing teacher programs, which I probably should do a regular practice with, but my work is really hectic at the moment, so I’m generally spending a couple of hours at least in the morning using the Model 01, and then usually sometime in the afternoon when I’m tired / really want to dive into coding I push it aside and use a conventional keyboard (usually my MBP). I just haven’t got to the point where I can flow freely with it, yet.
I wonder if there is any advice, even if obvious, that any happy programmers can give to a fellow programmer using the Model 01?
