Not the prettiest, but good at what it does. I like being able to paste news stories in then type them out.

Now I can type in wildy non-standard dvorak!

There is also an option to change the colour to brushed metal.

Wow, hideous design. I couldn't even stand a minute of it.

Since it lets you pick the keys to practice, you can also use it to learn wildly non-standard keyboard layouts like Dvorak or Colemak (found at http://colemak.com).

Also works great for QWERTY users, and freeware to boot.
