The bad thing about big keyboards is not the amount of keys, but how wide and lopsided where the mouse goes(unless you're a southpaw) they are. That's why I'd make a board that's about as wide as a 75%(or at least 75%+left-side numpad) but longer than a full-size, somewhat like the Datalux Space Sav...

I think it would be better if the bottom three keys would be shifted to the inside like in the handwired one. But besides that, I like it.

Even if you get 2,5u keys somehow, I think that the right one is too far right to be able to comfortably press it while keeping fingers on the JKL: keys, as touch-typists do.

Also, you have a 6u spacebar, or this 2,5u-1u-2,5u mess. One of the reasons I promote 5,5u specifically is sane splitting.

From a more neutral standpoint, your layout does make sense. If you can get used to it, go ahead. However, I personally wouldn't use it because I need both Shifts(I just type this way) and both Alts(because ąę).

See, this is the kind of "no because I said so" crap that makes me visit keyboard sites less and less each day. So having a gap or weird modifier size(1.25 on one side and 1.5 on the other) mixes in 65%/75% boards isn't idiotic? And you don't need heavier spacebar switches, nor does 2.5x1.5 go well ...

What I don't understand is why some layouts keep the 6.25u spacebar on a 40% when its already so small haha Because many people are way too stuck up in "standard layout is the best layout" mentality. Every time a new keyboard with a non-standard bottom row comes up they start bashing on that. And e...

"Product news" implies new information about a product. This is neither "information"(a suggestion) or "about the product"(no direct and/or official relation to the K-Type itself).

"Windows keyboard tax"

Since there is a term "Windows tax"(the cost of a Windows license on a prebuilt PC, but luckily in Poland the store has to sell it without it if you ask for it) and this is also nothing more than a stupid impairment practically enforced by them.

And with a good layout and Fn layer? IMO this is one of the worst possible layouts ever. 1. It's pretty much as portable as a TKL. 1u smaller in width and length don't make as huge of a difference as fullsize to TKL or TKL to 60%. And if you're really going for portability, you'll want a 60% or may...

I was looking at the release page and notices this snippet:
If six or more keys are pressed, it automatically switches over to N-key rollover.
Could you test if it works in Linux? They mention iOS, but that's probably because of Noppoo Choc Mini and a few other NKRO boards that don't work on it.
