OK, I do not care that much about switches. I think the overall keyboard shape and the layout are more important but some people do care about switches a lot and this may be interesting to them:

Looks like an updated Cherry MY.
Both have progressive force graphs, but this new switch's is significantly less steep.

"it is a gaming switch because it's RGB lighted"
If I install RGB LED light fixtures in my house, does it become a gaming house? What about if I paint my tarantula red, green, and blue? Gaming spider?

You are right on both counts. (spiders are all gamer btw, but they are usually rocking sleeper builds)

Ahh, I thought the beige box he's rocking was only for his dark web needs. Sneaky spider.

No, it has to be lit to qualify. How small is the narrowest LED strip you can buy?

You can put christmas lights on your clothes and ask for a higher salary because you're a gaming worker. :lol:

I think this is positive in that they try to reach new audiences and grow the market. This is arguably more intelligent than what Kailh et. al. are doing, which is to keep producing endless variations on the same themes. The latter may gain more street cred on DT forums but ultimately if the same sized audience is split amongst ever more products the scale of each production run will get increasingly smaller and less viable.

Anything that stems the tide of shitty cheap rubber domes (then dont even try to make half decent domes anymore) is good in my book.
