      So is everyone who chose the red option under 13 years old? Typing with 2 fingers is a LOT slower than writing with 10 no matter how fast you think you are. Those who can't type with 10 have a bad dinger cordination or a bad memory. I write with 10 withmy eyes closed and get 100+ wpm.

      It's actually not that hard, if you're familiar with a keyboard, you can type quite easily. For example, this entire post has been written with my eyes closed, and my keyboard hidden in my desk, so even if my eyes were open, if I looked down, I wouldn't be able to see my keys anyway.

      Honestly, you'll be able to use all of the keys and keyboard shortcuts eventually. I can hit any key on the keyboard without looking. Sometimes when I'm drunk or high I need to use the little notches on F and J to find home row, but I don't use Home Row other than that. about 109 WPM on a bad day, btw :P

    Can't believe this question is divided. You eventually learn to type without looking down at the keyboard anyway if you do it often and long enough. -_-;

    I know most shortcuts and where the keys are without having to look..no problem.. I could always just use the on-screen keyboard or pull it up as a little map if needed.

    I think everyone is missing the point here... How am I going to use WASD (enter every video game ever) with my two index fingers.
