That's too bad that both pins are incompatible. Designing PCBs that support multiple switches is already a bit of work, and you would have to leave some designs out.
I think there was an DIY ergonomic design that was supposed to support both Kailh Choc and Cherry MX, but eventually it was released as two different PCBs.

BOX that is silent, that would be complete blasphemy because the BOX switches has set the standard for decent Tactile switches with Noise.

Bet you're the kind of person who wants silent Model-F switches and while were here, creating this new horrid form of profanity, why not also include all the Beamsprings as well?

If you want silence there are already too many other models to pick from, rather than making the most desirable sound of the BOX switch mute :o .

Onya Kailh, for releasing really desirable switches for nearly every person on planet Earth.

If you have time on your side, could you look at developing and selling some tall Beamspring-like Kailh based switches, that could be soldered onto any normal Cherry MX PCB?

I bet you could do it easily, since you are the only ones here developing totally new switches on a continuing basis.

If you ever decide to go down this route, I bet you could easily sell each switch for around 15 to 25 US dollars per unit. I would pay it regardless since these new switches would last .......forever ;) .
