Funny aside, I was talking to my mom about my Filco and I asked her if she remembered working with Model Ms back before her job at DOT threw them all out. She said that she remembered what they were like and noticed that the transition to rubber dome was not easy. She says she can tell the difference and realizes the more dropped keys she gets now a days as compared to the model M. BTW, my mom is computer ILLITERATE so it goes to show you that even the inexperienced can tell the difference.
Lol, writing a thesis just for the hell of it. Yeah, ok
But yeah it doesn't have anything to do with being computer illiterate, it's just a matter of being a typist or not. I mean, if you did the hunt-and-peck thing, do you think you'd care what the keyboard felt like at all?
actually seen a few people who don't like the feel of mechanicals, but it's mostly because the one switch they tried just doesn't fit their typing style and they just gave up after it. I mean, if I was in the same situation and the first thing I tried was something with Cherry MY's, I'd have been pissed (FYI, MY's are linear and very
springy). And that happens once in a while with any
switch type. So if for whatever reason you don't like the feel of the Cherry Blues, and you can pinpoint exactly what it is that you don't like (the resistance of the spring, the sharpness of the tactile bump, or whatever), that makes it very easy to find you a switch that you will
