It'd be interesting to know how left-handed people feel about Unity.
It's very dominated by super-num, super-w, super-s, super-a, super-t,
etc. This is very nice for right-handed people, since you'd usually
use the right hand for the mouse. But left-handed people would
probably prefer to use the left hand for the mouse, forcing them to
move between the mouse and keyboard fairly often.

This is another good reason to use the alt-key in super-w and super-s,
etc, since that would reduce the necessity of using the mouse so you
don't have to move your hands as often.

I'm left-handed, and I find the accelerator keys in Unity quite handy for use on my laptop w/ trackpad since I can operate both the accelerators and trackpad with my dominant hand. I'm pretty used to similar keystrokes for other operations anyway (Ctrl-W, Ctrl-Q, Ctrl-A, Ctrl-S, Ctrl-C...). Even when I'm using an external mouse (which I do with my left hand) it's not that onerous; other applications already force me to move my hands around.
