Back when I started to use computers, there used to be an application called 'Typing Tutor'. As the name of the application indicates, Typing Tutor was meant to teach computer users to touch-type. To the best of my memory however this application ran only on Windows.

What is the Unix/Linux equivalent of Typing Tutor?
