the keyboard layout before QWERTYstepped up to the plate.
Was used on old, crappy typewriters that jammed alot, so they made DVORAK keyboards instead of ABCDEF keyboards so typeists wwould type slower.
Why it went out of use I don't know. It's probably because typeists memorised the DVORAK combo, and made DVORAK typewriters jam, too...
