I'm curious! How many others are there out there that are driven up the wall
by being in the same room with someone who is using a noisy keyboard? All I
can say is that for me it ranks right up there with blackboard screeches and
such. So, am I alone, or do I have (hopefully) company?

HA! Just yesterday was I in such a situation. It wasn't the keyboard (we had
the same) but the way she typed. Oh, the humanity! Those poor pitiful keys.

The real problem is someone graduating from an all mechanical typewriter
to a computer keyboard, weight means clarity. Why do you think keyboards
are so cheap? These bashers wear them out in a year or so.
Most people (including me) tend to peck at the keyboard and don't
touchtype, using two fingers only on each hand.

I like noisy keyboards. I used to have an IBM AT keyboard. Nobody seems
to make a noisy white USB keyboard. (Well, except for that defective
keymap one.)

Steven,

Check out Matias. My "significant other" has one of their keyboards and it
was that keyboard that inspired my opening posting in this thread.

Isn't that the one with the defective keymap?

It isn't a problem unless you're a keyboard shortcut junky like me.

[in response to my stating]


I have no idea whatsoever about the Matias keyboard and a defective keymap.
I'll do some googling and if anything shows up I'll post.

I suspect you like noisy keyboards for yourself, but what about noisy
ones others are using within earshot?

A friend was visiting me once. She went for a nap in a room adjoining my
office. I asked her if she wanted me to close the door. She said, "No,
keep it open--the sound of someone typing at a keyboard is comforting to
me!"

I still say that the best keyboards ever made are the old IBM clickity-clack
keyboards. I use them on every non-Mac computer I use (office, home, etc)
and only begrudgingly started using one of the soft-response type keyboards
on my Mac (which I like for other things, but hate for its lack of
tactile response). I type very hard and fast ... my bluetooth mac keyboard
is already starting to *** out after little more than a year.

Doesn't bother me, personally. Then again I spent many an hour
back in the day at college in the computer labs where most of the
machines were IBM unix workstations (they also had Suns but I refused
to use them as they were soft response keyboards) so I heard that chatter
constantly.
