Maybe I just don't understand the premise... I routinely type with my left 
hand because I am using the mouse with my right. I guess that I could swap 
sides if necessary. I have not noticed any difference between using the 
keyboard with Windows or Linux, so I would have to say that it is possible 
to type one-handed on Linux since that's what I am doing right now. Maybe 
my 9" spread from thumb to 3rd fingertip helps a bit to manipulate shifted 
keys.
