I have used a goldtouch (www.keyovation.com) adjustable erganomic keyboard
for the last couple of years and am very pleased with it. As far as I can
make out it has much the same click feel as a standard MS keyboard. Reading
about peoples experiences with the mac keyboard though makes me wish I could
get a split keyboard with the short stroke keys though... I also use the
dvorak layout. But that's largely because I got bored a la
http://xkcd.com/554/ and then never switched back to qwerty. By and large
"for the hell of it" still seems to be the most compelling reason to learn
dvorak but having learned I am not switching back.
