I can type with one finger at a time, on Linux and Windows.

Be very careful, I tried to use two fingers once and lost several pints of blood!

Did this happen using one finger of each hand? Or two fingers from one hand? This is so confusing, I'd really appreciate a howto Brian.

Two fingers on one hand. It will probably be another year or two before I attempt using both hands, because that's real leet stuff.

I used one finger from one hand and a finger from someone else's hand. Maybe that's where I went wrong...

Take note for self to remember never to let other hand join me on the keyboard.

Did this someone else donate their finger voluntarily?

I am no longer prepared to answer questions on this subject. My lawyers will be contacting you all shortly. That is all.

I'll say this: my old typing tutor used to say "a great typist needs four things: skill, patience, a sharp saw and not to be too squeamish" - make of that what you will.
