Can I get some clarifications on this?  What is white compared to clear or green?  Love that it's backlit, but since I missed out on my green board, does anyone have a good review of these switches.  It seems white is less clicky than blue/green but just as tactile?  What's the advantage of that over clears?

By the way I found this on the Green MX:

From all that I've read it's less clicky than Greens but requires just as much effort. Which is a lot, especially when trying to sustain keys during gaming (using my MX Green DK9008 G2Pro board).

But are those white ("milk") or clear ("white") on the Ducky?

Now that I re-read their Facebook post, I'm not sure.  Apparently they call the clear "white" and the white "milk", so now I'm confused as to which switches these are.  I know WASD Keyboards will be launching their backlit keyboards (hopefully with clears) sometime in March.  I definitely want a stiffer switch, but need backlighting too.  A green MX backlit board would be perfect but the CM Storm is too wide (plus I'm not fond of the red backlight).  I prefer white backlighting.  Maybe someday, I'll see the perfect keyboard for me.

Judging from a quick google translation of Ducky's comments on the post, I'm pretty sure these are actually what we would call Clear switches. If you look at the switches in the picture, you can tell that they are somewhat translucent.

iirc, in asia they consider white switches = "milk switch" and clear switches =  "white switch," along with the same lines they consider brown switches = "tea switches."

... or something along those lines  :-\

They clarified on their Facebook page that it is clears with tactile key action.
