I was mostly interested in dvorak because of it's supposed reduction in 
fatigue.  I've just remapped my keyboard to the dvorak layout and while my 
typing speed is drammatically slower I'm not finding the adaptation too 

I've done about half of an online typing tutor and I'm finding it pretty easy.  
If I like it (or can stand it) for a few weeks perhaps I'll get up to speed.
