The Keyboard that we know today has formally taken from Qwerty six first letters on the home row. The Home row is a term for the second row of the alphabet keyboard. In a row this is supposed to be a user or a typist put his fingers if you’re not typing.
The creation of the keyboard of the creation of the typewriter. At first typewriter made as comfortable as possible for its users, but as a result the users thus can type at high speed. This makes the hook-hook the character on typewriters to be often caught. Sholes finally found a way to cope with it, that is to randomize the layout of the buttons on the machine type the alphabet. Eventually the arrangement on a typewriter is derived on a keyboard as computer input and in 1973 established a standard keyboard as ISO (International Standards Organization). After the typewriter technology evolved to an electric typewriter to a computer, and to a random order of the alphabet remained in use.
