I used to, yes.

Until I booted up one morning and found that OS X had decided that my main monitor is now a TV, which lead to fucked up font rendering and colors, with no way to fix it other than running some script, disabling SIP and booting from the recovery partition.

So I ditched that piece of shit and installed BotnetOS. Can't say I regret it.

Yeah, color profiles didn't fix it unfortunately, and I wasn't going to get a new main monitor either.

Though I can't say I regret it. OS X was comfy, but I can't really complain about BotnetOS, not to mention that I'll be using it anyway for the field I'll be working in, not to mention the hardware compatibility and all the software available. The only thing I miss is how virtual desktops work on OS X.

My current layout is that of the TADA68, with backspace and backslash swapped, and control where capslock is as you find it on the HHKB.
The keys on the rightmost column are media controls.

Can't say there's anything I'd change, I'm more than happy with this keyboard and the layout I got on it. I haven't really used my HHKB ever since I got this board.

What I was talking about is not the standard layout of the TADA68, but albeit, it's fully programmable, so that doesn't really matter that much.

On another note, if I were to make a 60%, I'd probably go with a split spacebar, and use the rshift and right-side modifiers for something else than what they normally do. I never use those for anything.

Driver doesn't matter. Keyboard only sends keycodes, your OS interprets them based on your locale settings.

For 100 euros you can build your own 60% mech. With any switches, with any layout, with any keycaps, with any case. Just saying, that's something you might wanna look into if you're not afraid of soldering a few dozen wires and messing with a bit of code.

The code part isn't even hard now woth qmk.

I think there is even a gui version of it.

Any mechanical keyboards worth owning for less than $70?

>> No.57338621

Define "worth owning".
If all you want a keyboard with mechanical switches, there's 35$ options on AliExpress (sometimes even with Gaterons). There are even some bluetooth mechs for 60-75$.
If you're a bit more picky than that, you're going to have to raise your budget a bit.

Magiforce, Tomoko, Royal Kludge, and some Keycools are not too shabby for cheap 30-70 dollar keyboards

What should I look for in a model M? What price range am I looking at? I really like the tenkeyless one someone keeps posting in these threads but it looks like its rare and just costs too much.

>> No.57339515

The SSK (space saving keyboard) usually go for just under 200 bucks, while the industrial variants sell for $1000+
If you want a new production keyboard with buckling springs that is also not full size then
has some for ~$350

If you don't mind full size then you can get brand new model Ms from Unicomp for just $84 + shipping, they come with some customization and extra features like USB
If you want used you can get those old terminal model Ms for 40 bucks on ebay, but you need an adapter in order to be able to use it with your pc. Or you can get an used Model M for around 70 bucks.

oh shit nigga i just bough this same tomoko yesterday at like 5 am in a fit of autism
i hope its good, it has cheap chinese knockoff blues but apparently theres not much difference

i already have the blackwidow chroma but i'm getting tired of it, the bitchass front plastic cover is annoying and prevents easy cleaning imo, and i don't even use it to its full potential, you can apparently do some custom lighting and program macros and shit, which i never did because razer synapse is basically cancer
i legit want a mkb that isn't fucking fancy backlit rgb garbage that i never really use because it's a distraction more than anything, and i didn't want the numpad because it gets in the way of my mouse when i play csgo

what should i do with my current blackwidow chroma? im obviously gonna keep it but it'll either collect dust or be used in my office, which is basically the same. is there any way you guys can suggest i use this? ive never managed to program macro keys because once again, razer synapse is cancer. is it fully programmable? maybe i could use it for macros entirely

>> No.57339729

Tomoko actually has similar build quality to razer, minus the LEDs and ARM processor. As for the chroma personally I wouldn't bring a RGB keyboard to my office and the noise it will make would probably drive everyone around me insane. You could sell it on craigslist to some >>>/v/irgin and make some of that money bakc, or if you want put that money and buy a silent mechanical keyboard for your office work. Matias quiet click switches are actually quieter then rubber domes and more tactile then cherry switches so it should be an enjoyable typing experience while not bothering your co-workers

If you want to keep your chroma you could set it up as nothing but a macro keyboard since almost every switch is programmable. That way if you want to shitpost on 4chan you can just press one button and an entire copypasta magically appears!

that sounds expensive as fuck for a keyboard

tfw we used to own 2 old models like these, i'm pretty sure at least 1 of them was an IBM keyboard and my dad threw it out because it wasn't being used and was collecting dust in the basement

swear to god it looked like a model M, maybe it was some other cheap shit, I can't remember.. that's gotta be at least 5 years ago. i still feel sad about this, since he used to own the starting tech in a lot of shit and just threw most of it out and i'm only starting to appreciate computer hardware

>> No.57339833

that fully programmable shit looks interesting then, i might look into it and it could be useful for coding in the near future, or just input basic math formulas for note taking, since i do that shit

as for the office part, my colleagues can suck my dick :^), most of them are leaving on other floors anyways because my field of work is constantly changing and reallocating people, for the better i hope, instead of actually hiring new people

in all seriousness though i'm a student working part time, i wouldn't bring shit to my job's office. it's for my home office use, a seperate room where i do my tech related shit and schoolwork. cant concentrate when on my desktop because i have no self control

>> No.57339898

well the industrial ssk ones were only given to IBM engineers as a result they are more of a rare collectors item hence the $1000+ price tag.

Also the model F was made entirely from metal, even the mechanical switches were made from metal which is why when it first came out it had a price tag $900 brand new adjusted for inflation. And the very excellent construction gave it a 50 year lifespan. The $350 for the new production model F that has even better construction then the originals isn't too bad when comparing it old model Fs.

If you want buckling springs then just buy them brand new from Unicomp for under 90 bucks. They've got much better build quality then the vast majority of keyboards out there

Ive seen some model m's with ps2 on ebay do I need an adapter for them or is it just regular ps2

its just regular PS/2
Some have Din 5 and those need an adapter

Is there anything wrong with the older ones? I really don't want to spend a lot of money just yet.

>> No.57340558

Maybe the previous owner jizzed on it or something. I bought my model M used about a year ago for 60ish bucks. And this one was thoroughly cleaned by him (not a single hair was stuck in any crevice) and it was the older grey badge ones too. But now that they become more popular people are charging more money for them despite them looking like shit. For example right now my keyboard my would now sell for $120 on ebay which is why I'd recommend you either look hard for a good looking model m or buy them new on unicomps website

>I just want more pins, that's all
I'm a bit late, very actually. but a port expander chip would only set you back 1 or 2 dollars and would give you 8(or 16 if you get bigger ones, or multiple) extra pins while only sacrificing two pins for twi
