Typing on the Dactyl Keyboard
Dactyl keyboard is the best
The best keyboard, that i've ever put my hands on, is now, Dactyl keyboard.
[see San Francisco Bay Area Keyboard Meetup 2017-11 Impressions]
It's super light and elegant! and, is the most comfortable of all, more comfortable than Kinesis Advantage.
of the keyboards of similar thumb keys layout, with respect to thumb comfort and ease of reach, i put them in this order:
- Dactyl keyboard (best)
- Kinesis Advantage2 Keyboard or Maltron Keyboard
- Ergodox Keyboard
if your hand size is Asian, i'd say, you'd feel similar.
The kinesis vs maltron, i haven't decided. I use kinesis at home, but only tried maltron for half a minute.
