Default Keyboard complaints

Who designed teh 102 keyboard? I know a guy by teh name of qwerty designed the letter organization on typewriters and that was adapte to keyboards but we have some serious issues.

1: Why is the Insert Key next to the Backspace key? Man this is frustrating.

2: Why is the 0 directly over the O? WTF???

3: Why is the Caps Lock right over the Shift key? Why? Why? Why?

4: Who decided to place teh comma next to the period?

All these layout issues make it easy to create typos. Makes me mad.

I don't have any answers, but yeah, it really must piss you off to make a thread about it.

I'm just saying that it looks like some stupid people placed the rest of the keyboard options without actually looking at the keyboard.

Well, it makes sense to me. Keep the most commonly-used non-letter (man, I'm getting a blank on what they're called. Alphanumeric?) together, put the keys that are used to control capitals together...I'm sure if they were scattered about, someone would go around complaining that that doesn't make any sense either.
