Let's talk Mechanical Keyboards

I use a Happy Hacking Keboard Lite on my Linux computer and a Logitech MX Mechanical Mini on my Win 11 desktop. The MX is very nice. I would have one on my RPi 4 but I just can’t get it to hook up. :frowning:

took home my work keyboard and mic’d it up for a quick typing sounds video as well.

Yeah I really love the dampened sound profile you get with well lubed switches. I’m also a fan of putting relatively quiet switches into louder boards and vice versa, just to mix things up, so right now I have some lubed gateron milky yellows in my portal65 and some lubed techno violet long pole linears in my Keychron q2. Things tend to balance out that way :grinning:

i’ve yet to try some long pole switches, ive only recently seen that as being a “thing”, can you explain what that does? sounds like it will just reduce travel, and change actuation point relative to bottom out
because the bottom would move, but contact would not, correct?
