FOOTNOTE (if anyone is really interested):
The article below explains a bit better why Morse code operators would have preferred the QWERTY arrangement.
Essentially what it says is that in Morse code the letters of the alphabet fall into groups, based on similar coding patterns of dots and dashes. The letters S,E, and Z, for example, all have similar dot-dash coding patterns. Same, again for example, for C,S,I, and E.
What would happen is that the trained ear of a transcriber, listening to the beep-beep-beep of a transmission coming in, would instantly recognize the pattern, and instinctively the operator would move his fingers to that part of the keyboard were the pattern was. Then, an instant later, when he recognized the specific letter, since the letters in that group were all nearby, he could quickly punch the correct letter.
Every now and then we hear of suggestions to reorganize the keyboard, based on some "more scientific" way of doing it. But can you imagine the chaos for all of us that would result, trying to use a differently arranged keyboard, constantly typing the wrong letter, as our fingers keep hitting where the letter used
It's probably going to be an irrelevant problem, though, as something like this
