In a moment of insanity, I decided to build and try out an ErgoDox keyboard. So far, it’s pretty good. I really dig the Zealios switches I used for the keys. Here’s the layout I’m using at the moment.

  1. Zealios+ErgoDox seems like a popular endeavor recently, especially among keyboard nerds. How’s the adjustment to the new layout/ergonomics going? Probably not as gnarly as moving to colemak…

    • Mostly fine. Weirdly the ortholinear layout is the hardest bit. zxc just feel like they’re in the wrong place, but it’s really that I’ve been using the wrong fingers for them for a really long time.

      The enter move was pretty easy to take. The backup places for some of the symbols on the third layer is taking some force to actually use, but could make lots of things in programming much easier. ={}[]() all on or near the home row could be really cool.


    • Oh, and the zealios switches are smoooooth. No gritty feeling like my browns or the clears I had in a Code tenkeyless a while ago. I actually like them better than the Topre switches in a lot of ways. Nice clear tactile bump, and very quiet.
