Unfortunately, they split the keys in the wrong place!
What makes you say that? Just because where you like your keyboard split doesn't mean thats the best place for it in a few hundred years.

If they're using a QWERTY keyboard, then they type the same way I do.

I just want to know how they seem to get out 100 WAM on a PADD with two or three buttons.

Figure that one out and I'll consider trading in my keyboard. Until then, it's the most productive way to articulate one's self in text.

Re: Trek Keyboards

One of the problems with running everything off desktops is the death of control panels. If I had the money, I would love to scour junkyards for as many toggles and dials and buttons as I could find.

Just noticed a detail about a supposedly advanced alien civilization (by TOS standards):

Hummm, maybe they are so advanced they have clunky buttons purely for nostalgia... It worked for Tom Paris.

Oh god, did I just reference Voyager?!

It seems there was a QWERTY in the TNG engine room all along!

I guess i'm blind. I don't see anything that looks like a QWERTY.

Re: Trek Keyboards

Thanks.. Keyboard and trackpad it seems. But looks a little tough to use.

^ Just do a find on that page for "QWERTY" in your browser, and it'll take you right there.
