Re: How many of you love to touch type?
I was taught how to touch-type back in high school. At first I didn't really like it as I was already pretty fast at two-finger typing.
Now, I can't imagine not typing "properly". Sometimes I meet people and they're amazed at how quickly I can tap out a sentence. It's kinda cool. Also, my fingers aren't the bottleneck - I can type almost as quickly as I think. Almost. Well, not quite, but I feel much more free to think and type at the same time.
The flip-side is that I hate touch-screen keyboards. I'm constantly hitting the wrong keys or having it "autocorrect" me a long way away from what I wanted to say. The touch-screen slows me down to two-finger speeds, and slower since it's registering the key adjacent to the one I meant to press. I feel encumbered and frustrated by the touch-screen.
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
