Yes, so it's true then we abandoned the Dvorak layout because people typed too fast, but now that we don't care about paper jams why don't we go back to the dvorak?   
   
Because school systems teach on qwerty   
because teachers grew up with qwerty   
and because we are lazy...

This is actually a classic example of what's called the "Lock-in" effect in economics. One technology (QWERTY) had a little advantage over its competitors at the time, and that pushed it over the edge into becoming a standard (that happened to carry over to the present). Same thing happened with VHS, except that time the advantage that pushed VHS into becoming the standard was porn.

It just looks so uneven. Like the greater than and less than buttons will forever be randomly pressed.
