BEAKL layout

I've just stumbled upon the BEAKL layout. (Btw, BEAKL stands for Balanced Effortless Advanced Keyboard Layout.)

The takeaways:

Rewarding middle finger on the top row while penalizing it on the lower one.

Home box concept. There's nothing wrong with my pinkies on the home row, but I have to measure their exact response times yet.

Thumb clusters rule.
