Thank you for the very informative article about F — Keyboard. Actually I’m a fan of F Keyboard and I have started using in on traditional typewriters when I was a high school student. Decades ago, F Keyboard was a “must” for anyone related to accounting. When first computers showed up, our main trouble was to adapt MS-DOS to F Keyboard, which was not easy. Also, using Turkish characters in ASCII was also quite a trouble which there were more than one conversion until UNICODE was widely used. Thus; many documents were becoming unreadable in different versions of MS-DOS or Windows later on.. I can remember that creating web pages that could support different characters were a real trouble.
However, MacOS was widely used in publishing industry where authors were quite obsessed with F Keyboard. I can say that Apple offered F Keyboard layout physically earlier than Microsoft.
Still I’m using F Keyboard on all devices. However; F Keyboard is not practical on Mobile Devices which we cannot simply lay our hands on. Thus many F Keyboard users in Turkey are quite familiar with both layouts. I can use Q again quite fast with 10 Fingers (not just punching with my index fingers) which is quite common.
