I think the answer to that is just that you use the tactile feel when you press any key. The tactile feel is almost somewhat similar to the tactile feel of really nice and really new rubber dome keyboards, except the actuation is about halfway down. Of course, this means that bottoming out is not necessary.
Of course there are many other benefits to mechanical keyboards, but you already ordered one so I won't go into my sales pitch. hehe
Anyway, the quality is dramatically superior, and so is the feel of any key press - whether it's just a single key press, or a bunch of them (like while typing). I mean, even if it took an entire month to get to you, it would still be worth the wait!!! Yeah, I love mechanical keyboards so much that I am willing to say that at the risk of what you (or anyone) might say back!
Ultimately though, it's not like relearning how to type. However, I recommend treating it as such to maximize your chances of perfecting a technique where you aren't bottoming out while typing! One technique I strongly recommend is hovering/floating your wrists while you type. And by this, I mean really hover them; this will give you significantly more freedom when typing which means you'll be more relaxed. Therefore, everything you type will be much easier - especially those words which seem to get messed up every time you type them!
Finally, all I want to say is this: when I went from the G15 and the Lycosa to the Majestouch, I found it to actually be fun
to use my keyboard for the very first time! I mean, I've never considered using my keyboard to be fun at all. It was always just a means to an end, but now it's completely the opposite: I'm always looking for an excuse to use my keyboard - even if it means just pressing a neutral key like Ctrl, Esc, Num Lock, etc.! I don't do that a lot
, but when it comes to actually typing, I really am always looking for an excuse to type!
