I use both the US keyboard layout and the Finnish one. My keyboard's physical layout is the US one, and it's rather more convenient for writing English and code. However, sometimes I need to write Finnish or Swedish, and so I use the GNOME keyboard layout switcher to switch between them.

If I forget to switch back from Finnish, I invariably have a few moments of panic, when I suspect I've had a stroke, or have inadvertently drunk a bottle of vodka, when my computer doesn't obey my keyboard.

@liw Just in case you weren't aware, there's an "eu" layout in most Linux systems, where ä and ö are accessible via alt gr, but otherwise it's pretty much the us layout. It has saved me a lot of trouble switching between layouts. (https://eurkey.steffen.bruentjen.eu/ has a picture of the layout)

@neon Yes, I know. It doesn't work well for my physical keyboard.
