Red > Black >>> Brown >> Blue

Although my primary keyboarding concern is gaming. I will admit I've only had a brief experience with Browns trying out a buddy's keyboard but I do own the other three.

i voted for blues, i will be trying out the browns soon when EK gets them in stock finally, but until then these blues are just AWESOME

EDIT: also, for anyone making future polls, allow people to vote for more than 1 switch and explain why, not everyone has a perfect switch, and i doubt that i do either. I still need to try Topres and Browns, other than that i dont plan on trying anything else since it does not look like i will like linear switches at all. Lastly, NON CHERRY SWITCHES are a must in these things, Topres are arguably the best switches anyone can type on, but there is no doubt that they can last the longest of any switch (other than buckling spring).

Buckling spring switches are still made .

I think you should have included buckling springs in this poll. They're still made and I'm sure there are a lot of people here that would prefer them over the cherry switches.
Ummm....
