Long time lurker here. It's been nearly ten months since my preorder, but I just received my TE keyboard today! I am liking the feel so far. The non-alphanumeric key arrangement is going to take some getting used to, particularly backspace and enter, and shift. Like the OP, I think I will be swapping ctrl and shift. Muscle memory is strong.
Edit: To answer Gerk, I got a 104 with blues.
For shipping speed comparison, I am near Portland, Oregon.
