    Mechanical keyboards can go suck a massive bag of dicks.
    So noisy

    Doesn't 1 negate the use of 2?

    @jespersh

    I’ve built one with my girlfriend as a side project for me to use while I make raspberry pi bullshit. I didn’t have a wired one. Anyways, I would never use one for day to day engineering. Fuck that noise.

    @jespersh I can totally agree to that, at the same time I’ll recommend you to try other switches. Some switches are really loud (clicky) while some are really quiet (linear ones).

    @yehaaw my man I use a tactile mech keyboard(gateron supreme brown switches) and Ngl it is satisfying while coding

    Yeah, dude, whatever you like. No one’s judging.

    Never used a mechanical keyboard.

    I fucking I love island keys.

    @Oktokolo possibly two things that Mac does right is their screen and their keyboard.

    Anti glare and crisp display quality + typing on the island keyboard, is fucking A.

    No, this doesn't mean I am loving Mac, just that I am rationally appreciative of few good things.

    @Floydimus you probably are right, I actually never got the chance to work on a mac. I’ve used for a while to help a junior and the keyboard layout sucked ass. “Command” is just not placed at the ctrl spot ffs.

    My favorite keyboard is the Dell OEM keyboard they throw at you when you buy a computer.

    There is a other starter pack available:
    1) clumsy ThinkPad
    2) super ergonomic external Dvorak-keyboard
    3) sticker which read Foss, Gnu, FreeBSD and vim
    4) mirror to look at your self while coding super hardcore (because you can not film youself since your cameda is taped)

    There are other uses for that box of tissues that will make your tears go away faster.

    @jespersh you haven't tried a low profile non-clicky one. Not noisy at all.

    @iiii yes yes, king. More power to you!

    @ReverendLovejoy Lmaoo. Those boards, brings back a lot of bad memories and PTSD. Not the ones for me!

    @horus I’d love to own this!

    1) I'm using a Sony WH-1000XM4 that is far from a big ass headphone
    2) I'm typing on my Macbook's keyboard
    3) I'm never fond of stickers
    4) I have some tissues to clean up after lunch, not for wiping tears

    Guess I'm not a trve dev

    @KBS3A Depends on whether you work remote or not ;)

    @Xamenyap you’ll get there, eventually 😉

    @fzammetti in that case the tissues will get used for some other way of relief 😌

    @jespersh I love them but I hate people that ruin a workspace. That include loud ringtones, music over speakers etc. So I get the ones that don't produce the clicks and even put in the silencer rings.

    The clicks are on purpose in blue switches and have no place in an office environment. You can get tactile feedback without the noise. So it's a people are assholes issue not a mech keyboard issue.

    @hjk101 more power to you my man!

    @Floydimus: Hey, nowadays it's okay to be a Mac lover. You don't have to hide it.
  • 0
    @Oktokolo coming out of closet being a mac lover is more dangerous than LGBTQ folks.

    @Floydimus lmaooo dude ima screenshot it. That is so hilarious xD

    @Floydimus: Nah, in most parts of the world it is now safe to openly be a Mac lover. Sure, it might still be better to hide it in some parts of Redmond. But decades of the rainbow pride movement and overall societal direction towards individual liberalism lead to a world without a single anti Mac lover law remaining. Even in Russia it is currently mostly safe to admit being Mac curious or even a Mac lover in public.

    Be proud of who you are.

    @KBS3A lol I'll charge royalty, because that's what I learnt from Apple. Make shit and then charge for it.

    @Oktokolo proud of being a Mac user or Mac lover? Because I am neither 😏

    Only Mac I love is Mac and Cheese.

    @Floydimus i hate island/chiclet keyboards with a passion. whoever thought of pushing them everywhere should be beaten with them. the whole laptop segment accelerated a bit downhill when even ThinkPads started using it

    @ReverendLovejoy same here. the one i currently have has 10+ years of service and still works perfectly. was able to get a lifetime supply (4) when office was throwing them away

    @jespersh convinced my boss to buy me a Razer Blackwidow Lite as I got so used to using my own keyboard during lockdown that the office ones give me wrist cramps.

    With the included optional orange O-rings it maintains the nice typing experience and is barely audible over the background office noise.

    @kwilliams I personally use an epomaker board with brown switches. I take that to work. It blends with the background noise and people don’t mind me using it at work.
