Thanks for the responses. Do both both of you type "correctly" on an ANSI layout? I already shift the keys I type slightly to make it more ergonomic ('zxc' = ring-middle-index finger). I can obviously remap the layout to try to deal with that, maybe shift the 'b' over to the far left and push 'zxcv' one step to the right. That way I'd be hitting the keys with the same fingers, except for 'b'. I'm just trying to figure out how to live in two worlds without too much finger-confusion. :-)

Yes I type correctly with the exception that I don't use the right shift key. Assuming you use your ring finger for the S key it may be tough to use your ring finger for the Z key since the bottom row is shifted to the left.

Right, that was the problem I was pondering. I would definitely want to take advangage of the fact that the ErgoDox is designed for actual human hands with left/right symmetry, and not try to hit its keys with the wrong fingers just to maintain consistency with my non-standard ANSI typing style. This would actually be easier if my laptop had an ISO keyboard.
