BLOWRAK keyboard layout
Blowrak is a keyboard layout optimized for swedish programmers. It is
based on the dvorak keyboard layout, and the placement of åäö is
inspired from Liket's svorak layout. If you want to know why dvorak is
so much better than qwerty read this: http://www.mwbrooks.com/dvorak/procon.html
Compared to dvorak "d" and "h" are
swapped, and so is "x" and "b". This makes h and b placed on the same
place as on qwerty. Also, "d" is a much more comman character in swedish
than "h". Another important thing is that the key left of "a" (often
caps lock) should be mapped as control. The placement of brackets and
braces is supposed to be optimised for programming (make sure you have a
alt-key for your right hand!).

X11 runs on a wide varity of hardware, so here is a couple of
xmodmap-files for different keyboard-types.
for Linux running on Apple Powerbooks. You will also need to patch
kernel to be able to use capslock as control.
for normal AT-keyboards. (updated 2005-02-03)
