    The myth says that when they organized the letters, at the early days of mechanical typing, they made it easy for the salesmen to type the word 'typewriter' really quickly to impress the customers to be.

    If the myth is true is another question...

    Wiki says that possibly the keyboard was set up the way it was was because they didn't want the commonly used keys near each other to avoid machine wear.

    I hated that -- having to unstick keys because I typed too fast or typed a word whose letters were too close together.

    My top row reads "å,.pyfgcrl'¨". That's a bit more challenging than the QWERTY keyboard. But I can type "The idea that nineteen studious dadaists assisted Einstein is asinine" just using the middle row!
