I'm in the process of learning the two handed way. I had no idea that there where three different layouts. Now Dvorak certainly is not for the weak at heart.

If you like a good challenge, than learn it. If you dont, then DONT learn it!

Do you think learning DVORAK makes it harder to type on other people's QUERTY keyboards (such as the ones you might find at work/school), or is it easy to be a dual typist?

I'd love to increase my typing speed (I just need a a few more words per minute to break 100 )...and I'd love to put less stress on my hands when typing, being as I need them for piano, and I've already injured myself once a few years ago because I sat too low while typing. My concern is simply losing the ability to type fast on QWERTY, since I'll inevidably have to use it.

qwerty is like riding a bicycle. Once you learn it, you wont forget it.
On the otherhand, while learning dvorak, your hands will automatically go to qwerty keys.
They are both equally interesting to learn. I'll put it that way.

I use QWERTY myself and I doubt I'll switch over. I already type pretty fast on qwerty and I'm too lazy to learn anyways. But maybe one rainy day....

I don't intend on switching from qwerty as most keyboards are qwerty.
