Why are the Model M's so bad?
If someone tell me a generic "i don't like my car, what one you suggest ?", w/o adding anything else, i don't go to suggest a Smart or a Hummer, nor a Ferrari or a Trabant, I suggest a Golf or a Grande Punto, even if I consider the smart one of the more intelligent cars ever, even if I like a lot a Ferrari.
For keyboards is the same BS are extreme, bulky, not so nice looking, with interface problems if old IBM ones (and if connected to a ripster's PC), stiff and loud.
You can love them, but you can hate them, they can be also felt as a too long jump from RD or scissors.
Browns are the exact opposite, not too loud, not too stiff, not too tactile, not too linear, not too bad, not too good. The average joe's keyboard.
Ergo clears have a bit more pepper and salt, are tasty w/o being noisy or affected by great hysteresis, a Golf GTI to continue with cars analogies...
