I think this is true.

I just type naturally and have found after time I don't need to look at the keys all the time. And I don't use the home keys technique I learned in high school. Try to use more than two fingers and the more you type, pretty soon you just get fast at it.

I should also point out, that home keys thing was used when typing required pushing hard on the mechanical keys, the same reason the letters are arranged the way they are: QWERTY.

Keyboards are completely different now.
