I don't see any of that stuff replacing keyboards for computer programmers, gamers, students who use word documents, accountants using software, etc.

It might for the people who use their computers to watch tv/movies.

People who make closed caption live and court reporters use stenotype for speed already.
If everyone learns to type without looking at the keys, QWERTY era is definitely over.

Shame we can't even read the actual article.
But, it's probably a waste of time as the keyboard isn't dying off anytime soon.

Wouldn't that solidify QWERTY for a long time to come if everyone learns the layout by muscle memory?

GUI is to humans what WINE is to Linux trying to run Windows software, it's an interpretation layer that helps us understand in our primitive ape like senses. Computers languages are more efficient than human languages/forms of communication with all their nuances. Everything that has moves away from the keyboard, e.g. touch screens, big shiny icon tile UI's, etc is a lot slower and less efficient.
I would argue that this sentiment is only true in very niche cases. The most common thing you'll likely do on a PC is launch a program, and double clicking on a shortcut is a lot easier and faster than typing "cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steamapps\Common\Skyrim" followed by "run tesv.exe"

The reason you see power users with terminals and command prompts open is because they're trying to do something advanced that the GUI doesn't have support for (like reinstalling Edge with Powershell because it committed seppuku) or are creating a batch file that does several different tasks automatically. However, GUIs are generally designed (or should be) so that the most common ways a user interacts with the device are made easier AND faster.

There are no problems, only solutions I have yet to enunciate.

But what about those of us who can type without looking on QWERTY?

I figured that for the most part, if you're on this site you should be able to type without looking at the keyboard. Maybe I'm wrong? I'm no a CLI geek by any stretch but if you graduated high school after Windows 98 was released, you probably know how to type.

Foolish pundits have been making this foolish prediction since the 1980s.

There will always be alternative interfaces but touch screens, voice recognition and virtual keyboards all have major drawbacks.
