Hi there! This is meant to be an opinion piece, no harm intended. I’m not out to set fire to sacred cows. Your choices are cool. You be you. I love all of you with certain exceptions. LOL.
Ok, here goes:
I want stabilizers that don’t suck without modding, black magic, band aids, or any other goddamn thing. Pop them in, they work, they don’t rattle, squeak, or bind.
I want a way to program QMK that’s super fucking easy and doesn’t require any programming experience, I get it, you’re smart, I’m not. Here’s to you. Now make something I can use without a brain melt-down.
I want a Topre mount to Cherry MX that’s easily available, doesn’t require I buy a 300 US dollar board to trash. And Mike Sickler, quit with the goddamned interminable GMK buys, and get on this. Love you bro. This is the one most singular opportunity I can think of, besides stabs that don’t suck.
That’s it. That’s really all I have. The rest I can put up with. I don’t mind opening up switches, lubing, Frankensteining, stickering, or whatever. Those are all options I can avail myself of if I care. (I don’t). But there are some things I can’t buy. And I wonder why that is.
This is a discussion thread. Let it rip. Thanks!
It’s a couple of days before I turn 55, I’m drinking bourbon and soda. Please excuse me. I only referenced Mike Sickler because he made available the only switch that matters to me, the Kailh Box Navy, and thus is right up there with Tesla, Musk, and freaking Wozniak. I don’t know that he can stretch himself far enough. I’m just asking.
