It is yip. It took me a while to get used to the way it's split above but now I can't go back. That setup has helped with some back and shoulder issues I had for a while too, I don't lean or move off the keyboard as much anymore. I used to always lean left into the keyboard 😄

The layers really help too for a lot of things. For certain symbols, no more awkward hand positions. e.g. I hold the thumb key next to right alt and press "d" now for "&", leave go of the thumb key and its back to normal. I have a few persistent layers setup also, like changing "wasd" to be arrow keys and adding a numpad to the right split.

Overall it's amazing. Haven't hit any issues yet.
