paired programming & 2 keyboards

    i wish we could just do that!

    we use unix/linux/bsd- you use xmodmap to set qwerty/dvorak in those OSes. so you have to keep switching that way... in fact, i can't think of any OS in which you set qwerty or dvorak in the keyboard itself- all the ones i'm familiar with (mac, windows variations, *nix) set the keyboard mapping with software. so with your idea, we'd have two keyboards, but they would both be using the same mapping at the same time. not much help. (;

      If you are willing to have 2 computers, you can hack something up with a shared session using something like screen or vnc so that two keyboards going to 2 computers show up on a shared session on one screen.

      There are also many utilities that can help you switch in a hurry. Or some special keyboards to make it very easy. (Dunno how well it works though.)
