emacs users ergonomic concern

Emacs users are heavy function/modifier key users. I have followed originally the general idea to swap left ctrl with caplock, but the pinky finger really gets sore after days. Now by article from Xah Lee (, I realize that I need a ergo keyboard as well as swap ctrl with alt.

It is annoying to swtich function key at the time that I am already used to the original positions, but for healthy concideration, it ought to be good for long run!

I am now looking for good keyboards and try to get used to ctrl-alt swapped layout.

Happy emacsing!
