I am currently using Colemak CAWS. It is the best currently available keyboard layout for ANSI/ISO column staggered keyboards. If you're a split/ortholinear chad then DHm is enough.

Sounds like a massive waste of time to use alternative layouts. Unless you make a significant amount of money based on your WPM to make the time invested into increasing your WPM worth it, and have calculated that the time invested into learning a new layout will yield higher results than investing that time into simply practicing QWERTY more, then it's just a retarded pretentious hobby. And the number of jobs where WPM is actually make or break is few and far between. The only one I can think of is a court script, but those use some insane typing contraption for maximum WPM that isn't even a standard keyboard.

Sit down nerd, you have no idea what you're talking about and being all high and mighty about it. Alternative layouts are not for improving speed but ergonomics.

How does an alternative key layout improve ergonomics? Your wrists are still going to be pronated. Maybe if you have some crippling wrist problems minor decreases in movement might help, but at that point you're probably better off just getting a split keyboard and not even bothering with changing the actual typing layout.

Your fingers move less and stay on the home row most of the time.

No they don't, you still move you fingers laterally, moving your arm more doesn't matter

Just use QWERTY its the standard.
