How come the "A" is the only vowel not on the top row on the keyboard?!

keyboards used to be in a much more organized fashion, untill the typists began typing too fast for the typewriters to handle it, so the configuration was changed. It has remained the same since. I think a new model of the key board should be produced that allows more commonly used letters to be put in better places. we could start typing so fast!

The letters are the ones that make up "typewriter",(q added for no reason of course). It was so salesmen could quickly type the name of the product ;)

Actually the keyboard is laid out in the most convenient way for typing. It has the letters placed by what is used most, and which the dominate fingers can easily and comfortably reach them. That is why the left pinky, or ring finger, goes to the bottom left for the z, for it is the least used finger and key.

Back in the day the old type writers had like spider legs that have the letter on the tip with ink and itd slam at the paper leaving the letter... U know what I mean right? Well there USEd to be an order to the letters but when u typed, the things would cross each others way and get stuck n shit. So the order now is totally random cus they just organized it so the letters mostly used wouldnt cross
Fuck my head hurts now

its because all the letters in the home keys (where you're supposed to put your fingers) are all the letters that are most used so a is the most used vowel and thats why its there :) yay for computer nerds!!
