?y School in ?orocco uses French keyboqrds on its co,puters: Every ti,e I get reqdy to use q co,puter; there is this co,plicqted rigq,qrole I hqve to go through in order to set up the keyboqrd to type using English configurqtions:
This is an extremely annoying situation for someone who was trained using a qwerty keyboard. And it is a problem that occurs each and every time I try to use a school computer. Generally, it is only a minor annoyance that takes some time for me to change the system settings so that I can type properly, based on how I learned to type. However, it does take this extra time, each and every time. This might explain why I prefer to complete my work on my personal laptop whenever possible. It is already set up for my personal preferences, which includes the qwerty keyboard configuration.
Such a pain. But then, I leave the computers I have worked on set up for the qwerty keyboard, so anyone who comes after me gets the American keyboard setup, which no doubt annoys them every bit as much as the French keyboard annoys me. And causes them time and trouble to re-set up for French. So, I guess we are even.
