Graffiti 2 is good for newcomers. Full stop. With Graffiti 1, It was not a
matter of just learning the new strokes, but also mastering them and
getting a quick writing flow. As a matter of fact, I am no longer able to
write English on /paper/ unless I stick to all capitals, which I now do.
It's a residue of Graffiti 1.
The bottom line is that it's rather disappointing that Palm did not allow
the user an easy _choice_. Instead, add-ons are needed to return to good
Simplicity is king and 2-stroke inputs are an overkill when computers
automate the process of interpretation and rendering. You don't see us
pressing CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+CAPS+S to save the work, whereas filing work in
physical term would probably involve punching holes in papers, adding
papers to a folder, putting folder in the shelf and so forth.
