as shameful as it maybe i love this keyboard.
From a chiclet-type keyboard like that I would recommend swapping to browns or blues - it will probably be the least difficult to get used to. Blues are clicky and loud, browns are quieter but still have a clicky feel. They are both fairly light key switches though. If you feel like you're going to be "bottoming out" (which from my experience happens when you're coming from a rubber dome and you're a fast and efficient typer) you might want to go to a heavier switch like a clear.
We can make tons of suggestions though and everyone will have a different piece of input for you. The short version is that all switches are different and you'll need to try them yourself to decide.
