People like the browns so far.

IBM buckling springs feel nice.

I can't really say for most of the switches, but I can say that I don't like the feel of Cherry Blacks, I'm impartial to most rubber domes, and Cherry Blues feel pretty nice.

I didn't vote because I've never owned a mech keyboard, but rubber dome certainly isn't my favorite. Out of all the research and input I've gotten from numerous people however, browns seem the best for me. Just got to wait for the Shine to come out, and hear some reviews and I'll pull the trigger on either it, a u9bl-s, or a filco

The shines does allow you some windows keys like the calculator, etc. But is the back light important?

I have a board with cherry blues but I still prefer the buckling springs.
