You're welcome.

Once I have around 100 responses the charts will be much better, but I can't see them changing too drastically.

Wonder how those charts ( awesome btw ) will change with the recent of G710+ boards coming.. Brown categorically will increase obviously.

And the Greens will asell as soon as Ducky releases their board with them.

Ducky is releasing boards with green switches?! YES! NO MORE NEED FOR GHETTO GREENS (blue switches with a spring from a black switch, I believe. Going to have to go back to Geekhack to check that or use Google)!

I'm a bit surprised Reds are popular for typing though. That definitely shocked me a bit. Probably because more people own them because a lot of people game?

Hmm... Ducky with Greens? I'll have to look into getting one of those...

I have yet to type on a board with Reds, but considering how much I hated using Browns, I doubt I will ever want a board with Reds...

I liked reds better than blacks. Blacks are way too stiff. I don't know why but the browns I tried at the keyboard store in Japan felt a bit harder to push down than the blues, which I think is supposed to be lower (brown is 45g and blue is 50 g right?). Even at peak force (55g) the browns shouldn't feel too different from the blues which have a peak force of 60g. Well, it's been 1-2 years already so I need to give each switch type another try again.

Most likely. You have most, if not all mechanical switches implemented in some sort of tenkeyless, except for probably clears and maybe some other colors that nobody knows exists (and other switches. I think Filco makes a White Alps tenkeyless. Pretty sure I tried it when I was at Akihabara at the Cleverly keyboard store).

Just like Cherry MX Clears are to Cherry MX Browns, or "Stiff Browns", Cherry MX Green is just Cherry MX Blue but with a higher actuation force (stiffer spring). I believe the actuation force is 60g like Cherry MX Black switches.
