    this is based on the typewriter.  to be able to type was a necessary ability back in the day.  blame the one who made the original, i guess.  but if you ever have taken typing, it does make sense.  the lesser used keys are farther away. my kids use a keyboard differently than i do, more of a self taught thing.  hope this helps. the rest of the keys for computer function etc, were again placed by the designers. great question, take care.

    Meow48 is right.  The configuration of the keys was based on the frequency of use for each letter.  Ultimately it allows for much faster typing but there is a learning curve.

    yes my friend. It is same as typewriter layout. Most used keys are arranged as easily accessible. You can download software like typefaster, if you want to learn how to type fast?
