No, It's not impossible. I do mean traditional 2-finger pecking.

Here are the results of tests from three different websites:

My accuracy suffers. I'll get a screen recorder sometime. Back to the original thread, I got the Dvorak home-row keys down in a day or two. It's still a little weird forgetting the location of key right under your fingers, but I notice improvement. Right off the bat, I am able to construct most of the 'meat' of sentences with the home-row keys.

I don't have any worry about switching between the two. I am going to apply traditional typing style to Dvorak and keep my lame pecking method for QWERTY. I figure the differences in typing styles will retain my muscle memories and allow me to use both keyboard layouts.
