Blues are nicer, but Browns are a definite step up from a rubber dome.

Point is that there's lots of happy people out there with Browns, so it should be a safe bet.

Browns are a safer bet. My Das with blues is the least used keyboard I've ever owned.

No. It's kinda weird, but definitely not impossible. Many people get used to it.

Tbh, if the noise isn't a huge issue, I'd get a Blue Cherry keyboard.

These polls are more like fashion polls. In geekhack's case it says: What sold well at EK the last few monts? Which is based on what's available and how loud a few trendsetters were. I like Browns though. Definitely not the best switch, but perhaps the best compromise switch. Nice light feel and doesn't make much noise. I like them in a working environment with people around me.

Blues have a more pronounced tactility. Many people also like the clicky sound, although this is a matter of preference, and depends on how friendly you are with the people who you use the keyboard near

The browns are slightly lower force, and some people prefer the quiet.

Oh, another difference between the browns and rubber domes is that the browns require a lot less force to press. Browns require about 45g of force, Blues about 55g. Rubber domes are usually in the 55-65g region IIRC.

Since I can't really game on the blue switches, I just use the das on my HTPC. It's main purpose in life is now to annoy my girlfriend when she tries to type in her email password. I guess I'll have to get printed keys one of these days.

Data suggests anywhere from 5-20% of gamers have trouble gaming on blue switches. It's not a huge gamble I guess, but I think the browns are pretty nice.
