You have some different keyboard than
mine then.

My Meta key, which is the Alt key according to
the keyboard manufacturer, involves some 2 cm
horizontal movement with the thumb, from right
to left (perhaps I should estimate it to one
"inch" instead :))

To hit the Esc key OTOH involves a huge leap of
hand over several keys, and this movement also
dislocates the hand from typing
"asdf" position.
