For an experienced user, this makes little or no difference. It does,
however, help new users, who otherwise find the experience frustrating.

Yes, 'L' and 'T' are wonderfully simple. Not only are they better than G2,
but they also make penmanship inferior. Not to mention 'B' which is a '3'
letter-stroke, 'G' which is a '6' letter-stroke, 'A' which is an arrow,
'J', 'U' and the rest of the bunch which are a 'snap'.
Anybody who have used G1 in the past and defends G2 makes it a case of sour
grapes. Palm had a reason for facing Xerox in court.
