France and Brussels have funny keyboards

Posted by Sean Blanda on Oct 12, 2008 in Commentary |

I’m usually a terrible speller, but my stupidy disorder is heightened in Brussells and Paris. Because WiFi spots are hard to come by, we have to duck in the occasional Internet cafe. The cafe’s are made for locals and all of the menus are in French or Dutch. But the real obsticle is the odd keyboard. Because Brussells is home to two languages, French and Dutch, they use the “AZERTY” layout. The AZERTY is very similar to the American except for a few subtle but obnoxious differences.  France, jumps on the AZERTY bandwagon as well.

Seriously, I dare anyone to try typing on this. There’s also the problem of typing using a French spell check that makes every word float on a red squiggly line of grammatical dissaproval, but I suppose that’s another post…

The worst thing a bout the French keyboard is you have to hold down shift to use the numbers above the letters…do the French not use numbers? Are numbers useless to them? Who thought of that?

“Let’s make it so you can write a bracket without holding down shift…but what keys do we sacrifice? Numbers seem pretty useless, how about those?”

Every country in Europe has their own keyboard. I thought the EU was all about standards and regulations. I guess not.
