Shawn Milo, TouchStream LP Dvorak and iGesture user.

Hi everyone! I was invited here by TorbenGB, and decided to sign up. I really hope that whoever bought FingerWorks is going to expand on the product line, or at least continue it. If it's Apple, then I hope my next laptop will have the TouchStream by default! :o) Other stuff about me: I'm an INTP, a...

I know I'm arriving to this post late, but I thought I'd throw in my two cents. I switched to Dvorak about a year before I discovered the TouchStream. As it was, it took me about two weeks into my Dvorak switch to get to the point where typing wasn't painfully slow. It was another two or three weeks...

Yeah, I always called them "nipples," too. Although I never even noticed that there was no "Windows" key. Of course, I never use that key, and am a Linux and Mac user when I'm not at work. ;-) I was suprised to look down at my Thinkpad T43 and see that there was, in fact, no M$ key. Cool. Shawn

I'm going to stick my neck out and say no, it's not possible. Reason: I backed up my XML configuration file then changed mousing to the left side and saved a new file. When I compared the two files, the only difference was an added bit: swap_hands="true" Therefore, it seems that there is no way to d...

On my Touchstream LP, I set the right palm gesture to switch layouts. (Up with Dvorak, down with QWERTY!) ;o) <rant> The thing that sucks about Windows -- well, another thing, is that if you switch layouts, it only takes effect for the currently open app. That doesn't even include new windows and po...

If I could change one thing about the TouchStream, it would be the zero tactile feedback, so I agree in part. However, I don't believe that moving parts are the answer. That defeats some of the purpose, adds more room for failure, and will make gestures more cumbersome. What I think it needs is an i...

First off, Fingerworks went out of business, so the only way you'll probably get one of these babies is through Ebay for about $150 over retail, maybe higher. Sorry. :( To answer your other questions: The gestures/macros can be edited through a Java interface which is available for Linux, Mac, and W...

I can think of a strong reason why it's not Apple. Apple is known for simplifying things. Fewer keyboard keys, easier interface, etc. No matter how much we all love our FingerWorks products, they present a learning curve, and trying to use the TouchStream when you're in a rush or already stressed ju...

The TypeMatrix 2030 is great!

I'm almost two weeks into using the 2030, and it's great. Of course, there are no gestures, but it also costs hundreds less than the TouchStream. The #1 feature is the straight rows of keys -- not staggered. The TouchStream is the same way, but now you get tactile feedback with it. For the first tim...

Just go cold-turkey. It sucks at first, but it's the only thing that worked for me. If you're used to touch-typing in any layout, then learning any other layout is going to be painfully slow. If you do it for an hour then quit, then next time you go back to it you're going to be about where you were...

No, no issues with the PS/2 to USB adapter on Windows or Mac. The only difference is with the Shuffle key in Windows XP. The Shuffle key is basically like holding down Alt+Tab. Press it once to switch to the last app. Hold it down to scroll through the apps. The only issue is that, with the USB adap...

Torben, As much as you're going to dislike this, put the TouchStream aside for a couple of weeks and learn Dvorak using a printed layout on the wall -- don't look at the keyboard. Using a regular keyboard instead of the TS will let you learn Dvorak as easily as possible. The TS, between its non-exis...

If you're having trouble touch-typing consistently on the TouchStream, use a normal keyboard. I don't think that finger drift is a big problem -- I actually think that the zero-force typing helps me to mentally separate the two layouts. The thing is that I share my computer with my fiancèe and it's...

Yeah, you have several good points there. Fortunately, I use a Mac so I don't have those problem at home, and at work I don't have to share my PC. In that case, there's an even easier solution, which I should have realized before. Simply use the gesture editor to make the QWERTY/Dvorak switch one of...
