The time between each keystroke for me is different on each keyboard
because of the location of the keys. On one keyboard special symbols
like |\/<> are located elswhere. If my fingers dont know where those
keys are I cant login as quickly. Also most of the password are typed
subconscionesly, only the fingers know the password.
For me a bright example is loggin onto the servers at data-center
where each of the keyboards have different layout for some keys.
