Re: Your typing skills are totally erased: what would you learn?

Stenography doesn't help at all when most of what you type isn't natural language text, which is the case for many software developers. Why would you think that? You can have a shorthand for any (non-random) corpus, and coming up with one for a severely restricted formal language is likely easier t...

Re: [WTB] Ergonomic Keyboard

I have to strongly disagree about the "easy adaptation". Getting used to a columnar layout is as difficult as with any other keyboard and if anything, the right side that looks like on a standard keyboard confuses the hell out of me. For the record, I have no problem moving between standard and ergo...

Matias should have a new revision of the Ergo Pro out now. It's called Programmable Ergo Pro.

Re: Linear switch for autoimmune arthritis: light or heavy?

Is there a reason to go this route over Matias Linears or Gateron Clears with o-rings etc. if the 30g Topres are almost linear anyway? You said you already have a Topre keyboard. Then it's a matter of swapping the domes/sheets. As for the knockoffs like Plum etc., I've never tried them so can't spe...

Re: Linear switch for autoimmune arthritis: light or heavy?

What about 30g Topre? Or even the cheap replacement sheets from Korea? It's substantially softer than 45g and in fact almost linear.

The label is the same as on my keyboard from the Leanord Elan computer. This one is obviously older, though.

Re: daskeyboard product management

I come across people who just want a MS Natural (Ergonomic 4000) clone but "mechanical" almost every day. Their options are extremely limited to the best of my knowledge. If they don't want to learn a different layout like ErgoDox, it's only Kinesis Freestyle Pro (Edge if they want backlight), Matia...

Re: daskeyboard product management

Das Keyboard was originally advertised to typists and I can get onboard with that for the most part: so, make an ergonomic keyboard. Okay, that might not have the mass appeal, but there's certainly a big demand for something like Microsoft Natural, which has been a mainstream success too. On technic...

Re: SafeType keyboard review (seriously, what the hell)

Probably the stupidest aspect of this keyboard, and Chyros doesn't mention it (I think), is that the vertical parts are at a fixed distance and in parallel… and you can't change it… and if you could change it, the mirrors would be even more useless. BTW the note about it being only black, while the ...
