I'm not getting this part. Are you saying learning an alternate layout is pointless because the other, public computers you'll be using are configured with QWERTY?
You could look at it this way: my muscle memory from learning qwerty is conflicting with my effort to muscle-memorize colemak, and I have to sacrifice the speed of one of them. In the end though, colemak seems less fatiguing so far for me, so I'm sticking with it. Sure I can look at the keyboard if I need to use a public computer, but that tends to bring some typos of its own, at least for me.
