    Right now our filters and tech create a bad ecosystem, but that's something this very site aims to fix.

    I like to program, unfortunately on a German qwertz things that are easy to reach on the English qwerty are all over the place: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QWERTZ...

    Most programming languages are designed so that used symbols are unusual enough that you don't regularly need them, but easy to reach on qwerty. Qwertz broke with most of that easy to reach stuff.

    So I would like to have a keyboard where { } [] ; : . \ / have individual keys that I don't need to press modifiers for and having them closer to the center would also be nice.

    So much so that I thought about making my own keyboard that has additional rows to it.
