This goes back to the original manual typewriters. The keys were originally arranged placed based on most common letter usage, but people typed so fast the mechanical character arms would get stuck together. So the keys were placed in positions to actually slow people down.

As a side note I was stopped for a road check. and the officer questioned my sobriety, by asking me to recite the alphabet. My comment was " QWERTYUIOP ASDFGHJKL ZXCVBNM., and that sir is all 26 letters."
