If you took a typing class in high school or otherwise learned to type without looking at the keyboard then it's *much* faster than using the mouse. I've always preferred key commands to mousing around.
For key commands, no typing class needed. I had one, forgot it all, then computers came out (I'm back up to being a four-finger typist!). Simple repetition can make most all key commands easy and fast. I'd be willing to bet almost everyone on has already used this to some extent.
I would think that a typing class would actually slow you down... just setting up your fingers in the right spot versus just hitting ctrl-s, etc.
Now as for typing a letter, or even making a post... a typing class would most handy. And a mouse doesn't even come into the equation.
And besides, if you're one of those boycotting Apple from another thread, you should go all the way and never use a mouse again!
(I had a mouse die recently, and had to learn many keyboard-only tricks to just about completely mimic the functions of a mouse (sans any paint programs/functions *grin*). No, not using mousekeys, but mostly TAB, ENTER, ARROWS and Shift-Function keys. Although it took me until just last night to perfect (read: repeat) being able to sort in windoze detailed explorer.)
"Lose" is the opposite of "win." "Loose" is the opposite of "tight."
