TRUTH !!
By the 1870's, American printer Christopher Latham Sholes had patented a
"type writing machine" that had keys actuating metal arms with letters that
struck the paper out of the operator's view. Thus jams were common, and not
easily discovered. Sholes experimented with rearranging the letters so that
common letter combinations were spaced apart. While typing those
combinations was slowed down slightly, this had the desired effect of
speeding up overall typing speed, with fewer jams. Sholes' invention
eventually led to the very popular Remington typewriter.
