Comment Re: Programming keyboard (Score 2) 190

Yes, this. I read through all the comments to find only one person mentioning the action distance. Seems like a huge flaw in the argument to me. Can someone please explain to me how keys with a large activation distance with a fuzzy end is faster than a small activation distance with a discrete end? It doesn't make sense to me, nor does it match my admittedly limited experience. Going from Mac desktop keyboard to trying a friend's mechanical felt like changing from running on dry concrete where you put your foot down, hit the ground, and pick it up again; to running in foot deep molasses, where you shove your foot in and hope you get traction on something to build momentum. It didn't feel faster to me, and it doesn't make sense that it would be, either. In the end, all I've ever heard are assertions, not arguments.
