Plover is a program for steno typing on Linux. It appears to be unique in the steno world as it lets anyone type steno on their machine without the cost. I will admit that it takes time to learn and use, and I'm far from proficient in it now, but my, it's a pretty cool thing. It might actually be worth learning compared to something like Colemak or Dvorak which have nice benefits, but which sometimes have drawbacks that outweigh those benefits.
All in all, it's quite an neat piece of work and I am very happy to have it, even if Plover is written in Python.
