Why I gave up learning Dvorak

After 3 weeks of using Dvorak as my keyboard layout and actively trying to learn to touch-type again I have given up! My typing speed in Qwerty is about 4-5 times faster than Dvorak and it has barely improved since I started.

I think this reflects partly on my personal inability to learn to type as some of my colleagues are typing faster than me in Dvorak after only one week! I suspect that learning to type in Dvorak in the first place would have its advantages over Qwerty but I feel that it's too big a hit to take considering I can type already. It is also worth while if you have RSI or similar issues as it reduces strain on the wrists and fingers.
