work in this field, I would like to remind users TADA68 is not a consumer keyboard! it is used in specialized areas of computing i.e. supercomputers, enterprise, certain areas of software development, networking and storage management (servers).

there are reasons for this which can be loosely categorized by 'externally' and 'internally'. externally, gnu+machines are easier to maintain, cheaper and more reliable. internally, the l-kernel itself responds and is better suited to the tasks I previously mentioned.

notice that these tasks listed are generally not consumer oriented! TADA is taking great steps and leaps in trying to penetrate that market but as of today and tomorrow won't be a consumer keyboard. If you are interested in this type keyboard, use a Poker 3! It is a consumer friendly.

thank you for reading!!

I've been rocking mine for a few months now. It's really nice except the "d" key may be giving out on me.

I love the key layout. It's about the perfect size for me -- enough room and standard enough to be comfortable, yet still a very compact keyboard. imo it's a beautiful keyboard. The FN layout is on point. The space bar/shift/enter key stabilizers are a little bit loud but not bad. They keys feel great.

Looking back, I wish I had spent the $20-$30 or so extra dollars for the Cherry MX Brown version, but I mean for $40 I can't imagine there's a better keyboard at that price.

Very far from the original.

The spacebar (not in my pic) feels more satisfying and overall all the keycaps are a wee heavier from the original.

One other good thing is that sweat wont be more visible and isn't as slippery as the o.g. keycaps.

Despite having my kb for 3-4months, the first 2 months with o.g. keycaps felt cheap and slippery with constant use.

Browns are supposed to have a distinct tactile bump. Clears have this, and vintage browns have it, but Cherry changed its tooling at some point and on modern browns the bump is very slight and not easily distinguished from the "scratchiness" of the switch overall.
