fwiw , apparently  there is a better arrangement for the letters on the keyboard but back in the early typewriter
days they jamed up too often so in order to stop that , they changed the keys to qwerty to slow people down
with the age of software some offices use the earlier arrangement , don't know where the caps key is for that !

Actually is was to separate commonly used keys from each other, if you struck qwerty in order quickly (professional typewriters were unhumanly fast) one hammer comes back and hits the next as it's going up.
