I think for coding language isn't all that important. Far more important is where all those special keys are located.

I once thought about switching to a non-QWERTY layout, but after checking all sorts of layouts I found that for coding pretty much every layout on this planet sucks.

Buying a blank keyboard and creating a layout based on statistics for special-keys used in the currently used programming language would be my way to go.

... about DVORAK one thing I don't like is that one of its principles is: (wikipedia)
- The right hand should do more of the typing, because most people are right-handed.

That's totally crap.
If anything then the the 'weaker' hand needs a little bit more training. Treating both hands equally is definitely my thing.

You will have a head crash on your private pack.

Working...
