How Effective are Ergonomic Keyboards?

Neurohype How about pain when you're on vacation? (478 comments)

I don't usually have any noticable pain when I'm typing or at my computer. But I do get a low ache on right wrist whenever I happen to be away from a computer for more than a couple of days.

Yes, it's strange and I was wondering if anyone else happens to get that?

It's like my hands want and need the "exercise" and if I'm chillin' on some Mexican beach, with no one around but my beer and then unlocking it when I returned.

The idea is to stay loose and nimble, and keeping keys close to your finger tips, enough to minimize the extending of your falanges, is probably far better than keeping your fingers straight... such as some keyboardists do with far greater care than long finger nails deserve.
