with all due respect, this is just trolling. Der Vergleich hinkt.. totally. Only valid comparison is, both are cost savings. But that's
about it. OK, you don't like to use model Ms, but that is your personal opinion, which is of course 100% valid and also interesting. However then..
a) Cherry totally ruined the keyboard with the MY switches (admittetly, the board design looks great - but was and still is flimsy; keycaps, old one, of course are end game till today). No one, at least in this community, uses it (I would dare to say, maybe no one in the whole world uses it as a daily driver). Only purpose is to harvest the keycaps, if the board is old enough. Now on the other hand, many many here love to type on a Model M and it is definitely in the end game category (if you like a little bit heavier switches and of course, clicky).
b) While the G81 is just a step down (into the abyss) with no good, the Model M actually has some improvements. The layout is a classic. The look is a classic. For some the SSK is the most beautiful keyboard in the world. The keyboard case is still top notch. I don't know what rivets are, mine just works and looks brand new. The sound to me is not worse than the Model
F.., which also are highly a matter of taste, but anyway, both are a classic sound wise.
So in other words, the Model M and Cherry MY (G81) are not comparable at all, one is a POS, one is end game material (with different shortcomings, like everything in the world) - they live in different Galaxies.
But having that said, Wodan, we still love you (and your Cherry finds;)!
