Whichever of the two you get you're gonna be bottoming out for a week or two - it takes a bit to get fully used to them.
But yeah there's quite a difference between the two switches. The tactile bump on the blues is more pronounced and sharp (that's where all your force is needed), but the bump on the browns feels very soft and more gradual.
I used to really, really like Blues myself but I think I'm starting to lean towards using Browns again because of how light they are.

Edit: You were right about there being a Cherry MX Green switch under my spacebar, that's pretty cool. I've never seen one before, it has an interesting feel to it, but I will never again take off the space bar to look at the switch, it was the biggest pain in the butt ever to put back on, took me like 45 minutes.
. Yeah I've always been wondering why they never made a board completely with Cherry Greens, just for the hell of it maybe someone would like it. And I'd be interested in trying it at least.
