As most of the users here, I spend a considerably amount of my daily time typing in LaTeX. I think that the typing position of the hands, at least for the US layout, should be different from the one suggested for typing plain text. For example, the right hand should lay on the right edge of the keyboard, so that to be able to press backslash and the brackets faster. What do you think about it? Does anybody know of any study regarding the subject? It would be nice to build an optimal finger map for LaTeX writers!
Ps: in view of recent comments, I type mathematics, so I am looking for people from any discipline that are used to type special characters such as backslash, dollar, brackets etc.
