I figured it was about time I gave my promised update regarding my switch to the Dvorak keyboard layout.
It has been almost three weeks since I switched and I am typing at a decent speed and slowly getting back to my normal typing speed.
I stopped using the tutors after the first week and have been learning by doing my normal routine (e.g. chatting on irc, instant messaging, etc). I do have the occasional mix up and hit the wrong key but that is to be expected..
I like Dvorak and I have no plans to go back to the Qwerty layout.
