I tried out dvorak yesterday as well. With KDE´s keyboard layout settings 
which offers a german variant of it. Since I often type german texts with 
umlauts I need a mapping that makes umlauts easily accessible.

Now I always thought I need to exchange keycaps to actually use and learn 
dvorak. It seems to be possible with my ThinkPad keyboards and the other 
keyboards I have, but now I learn that its not even necessary.

So I all would do is print myself a - hopefully useful - german dvorak 
layout somewhere in eyesight and learn it with a regular keyboard?

How does it work when you have to use a qwert(zy) keymapping sometimes? 
Would that still work out nicely enough?

I wondered about dvorak for a long time but never took the faith to 
actually really try it out for me. Especially cause of the fear not to be 
able to use standard mappings anymore should they be all I have when 
working at a customer´s machine or so.
