Re: Cherry appreciation topic

Those first generation MY switches are in fact rather pleasant to type on, they have nothing in common with the horrible white ones which Cherry chose to replace them with.
Probably some Youtube "influencer" out there would even rate them better than MX black switches :lol:

Re: Let's make the worst layout ever!
