This is the layout of a German keyboard:
When I first saw this, I thought, “Oh cool, it supports the ä, ö, ü, ß and the euro characters!”, and then I realized, that because of it, many of the other keys are in different places. The most annoying change of all, is the switching of the z and y characters. During work, I kept typing my name wrong. As a result, I changed it to the North American keyboard and all was well again.

By the way, you should check out the French keyboard. It is even more different. As I recall, instead of QWERTY, the French one goes something like this, “AZERTY”. Drove me crazy right away.
