Do you really know this keyboard?
This is often called the "QWERTY" keyboard because the letters Q, W, E, R, T and Y are in the upper left hand corner. This deliberate poor key location reduced the problem of jammed keys because of the lengthy key reaches required. That is, the layout of the keys was developed not to help the operator, but to hinder the operator's speed by forcing them to make cumbersome reaches.
