Creating this topic as I’m genuinely curious about the state of clicky switches, and perhaps learn more about the history, trend and preferences with regard to using clicky switches.
I was reading through some old forums and seeing how users tend to enjoy using Cherry MX Blue and Green switches. There was a bit of a resurgence when it came to the Kailh Box clicky switches, with the Box White and Pale Blue, then the Thicc Clicks Box Jade and Navy. I believe there were other clicky switches along the way like the Kailh Speeds and Gateron Ink Blue, but by and large they seem to be “out of meta”, forgotten or even memed about.
On a personal level, my first ever keyboard and beloved workhorse is a Cooler Master Masterkeys Pro S with Cherry MX Blues. Years on, and it still functions like a tank. I’ve also grown fond of Kailh Box Pinks, which I use in rotation with Boba U4
