I think we should show the layouts to casual users. Thats where the sweetspot is in terms of sales. With the pyra being more generic, it can appeal to a more general audience. That demographic is orders of magnitude bigger than any of us combined.I know quite some people who prefer this kind of typing. -----Since the best use-case isnt desktop typing, it hasnt been given priority. But it should absolutely be possible, for the sake of convenience.
Desktop typing with two hands is a further subset of that, but by all means, where there is possibility there is potential.
What do you think? Should we invite people to this poll, even though they are not the primary target group of this project (but very interested in it, anyway)? Please let's not discuss this question here in this thread. It's not intended for that. I'd rather ask those who have an opinion on that, to write it to me as a private message. ED? Tenka? ible (thread starter)?
Something anyone can use has a much bigger audience than something only hackers and otakus can use. The difference is less important for you and me, but it means everything for a great majority of potential customers. Its not even a loss for the power-users. Win-win.
The more devices sold, the more obscure layouts can be produced.
I think trying to compete with a fullsize keyboard for 10-finger typing is something left for where it doesnt hamper 2-finger typing on what is primarily a 2thumb keyboard.
There are many people who like to drive offroad, and many people probably do it in station-wagons as opposed to offroad vehicles. Adding some clearance underneath the station wagon is ok, mounting a winch kills the station wagon.
The problem with voting here is that many are not fully aware of how the space fits in, in itself, and also as it means quite a lot for the keyboard as a whole, and thats the important bit.
