Rob, It may not be necessary but it sure does help. However, the main thrust of my argument was that for many of use who are not as coordinated with both hands, switching hands tends to dirupt one's workflow in that it tends to demand that one redirect one's attention toward using the less dominant hand. Just speculation; but I would not be surprise to find that this is one of reasons many are not good typists even if we have memorized the keyboard layout and can type without looking at the keyboard. > -----Original Message----- > From: firstname.lastname@example.org > [mailto:email@example.com]On Behalf Of Robert Meier > Sent: Tuesday, June 11, 2002 11:12 AM > To: firstname.lastname@example.org > Subject: RE: Two-Monitor advantage?
