as anybody who has tried to type with a cat on their lap will confirm, there are times when a left- or right-handed bias in the keyboard layout is a positive advantage

 What's better on this
 keyboard when compared to the Dvorak layout?
 At first sight, it looks heavily right-handed,
 all the letters that the 
 Dvorak keyboard
 has on the homerow are on the right hand.

 P.S.: I'm a happy Dvorak
