A year on of typing on SA and I feel like I'm over it, too. The dishing of the keys is so close to being flat that I psychologically felt off about the whole typing experience after a while. I never minded that wobble too much.

The entire way to buy it and run it is forked, too.

To be fair, you have to have a very high WPM to understand the SA keysets. The feel is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical typing, most of the keystrokes will go over a typical keeb'ers head. There's also MiTo's superior designing, which is deftly woven into SA's characterisation - his personal philosophy draws heavily from K3's cap making, for instance. The SA fans understand this stuff; they have the typing capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these keysets, to realize that they're not just "a keyset"- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike SA keysets truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the feeling of clackery in MiTo's existencial catchphrase "MiTo signing off, goodbye Geekhack," which itself is a cryptic reference to the terror that SA owners had to live in, during the "DCS time". I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Pulse's genius design unfolds itself under their fingers. What fools... how I pity them. 😂 And yes by the way, I DO have a Godspeed tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the clackers' eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 WPM of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.  :rolleyes:

I generally hate all keycaps. Keycaps are for poofs. Real men touchtype on stems. Non-functional artisans are awesome, I use them for the ESC key ... escape is for cowards anyways, real men go frontal assault.

I wonder if the SA hate is for the mere idea of high-profile spherical keycaps, or just for SA in particular.

SA isn't perfect, but it's the only high-profile spherical family available. MT3 will be out soon-ish, and it has the potential to be superior in terms of keycap shapes, but it only offers dyesub legends which limits its appeal dramatically. So I'd say there are definitely legitimate reasons to find SA or MT3 disappointing, but the only reason to hate either is if you hate high-profile sphericals as a concept.

And that's okay I suppose; I categorically dislike all cylindrical keycaps simply because they are so relentlessly prosaic and commonplace, so I can see how others might resent dislike all high-profile sphericals for being too classy and sophisticated.  :p

I specifically hate SA.

Dont think MX is a good mount for tall spherical caps.

Plus it has essentially become a meme profile.

I think that SA actually looks quite nice in pictures and renders, but after using it I really didn't like typing on high-profile caps so it probably isn't specifically SA, just high-profile caps in general.

Yeah, the wobble is definitely noticeable. Luckily, it doesn't bother me.

What do you mean SA has become a meme profile? I don't see how the definition of meme fits in this context.

Meme is a term I use to insult things as well as refer to other things. I was insulting SA by marginalizing it as a meme cap rather than a real cap.

My only refutation is that I find SA quite comfortable to type on. I think if SA was uncomfortable to type on then I would have discovered that by now, having used SA almost exclusively for the last two years.

For an example of a high-profile spherical keycap family that is not (as) comfortable to type on, I refer you to Topre's Hi-Pro keycap set.

My feelings on SA are neutral, I dont hate them but not my preference.
that said I would kill for the trouble minds adapter kit so I can use that set again, god that set needs a relaunch.

I generally hate all keycaps. Keycaps are for poofs. Real men touchtype on stems. Non-functional artisans are awesome, I use them for the ESC key ... escape is for cowards anyways, real men go frontal assault.

neovim
bindkey -v in zsh
cVim for Vivaldi

Esc is one of the most important keys on the board..

I'd wager that most SA haters tried their first set predisposed to disliking them, or at the very least highly skeptical. Consequently, confirmation bias combined with too little time acclimating to them led to a dismissive attitude that grew into "hate" as the profile grew in popularity around them. These are called "snap judgments", and they carry little to no rhetorical weight.

I admittedly did this. Could you send me a set so I can try it again?

I been trying to like SA, I tried SA on and off for close to a month. I will admit Its gone from pure hatred to I can tolerate SA. Still its by no means my favorite profile. I find that it fatigues my hands far quicker then cherry profile are DSA.. That being said I really like DSA profile go figure its one of my favorites. Also I find the hollow thunk that a set of SA keys gives off bit unsettling. I continue to use my SA key's for the simple fact. I would like to get use to them at some point cause don't want to limit my self on key drops just cause of a profile.

Troubled minds is literally my least favorite keyset of all time. I would use a dell stock set from an early 2010's rubber dome over that set.

Tried a set when i was fresh into keyboards, and used for about a month. Sold after that because the wobble threw me off. The main reason i wanted to get into keyboards was for the fact that SA even existed and caught my attention, So no predisposition of hate here. But i will give it credit for OK looks, ON CERTAIN BOARDS.

To be fair, you have to have a very high WPM to understand the SA keysets. The feel is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical typing, most of the keystrokes will go over a typical keeb'ers head. There's also MiTo's superior designing, which is deftly woven into SA's characterisation - his personal philosophy draws heavily from K3's cap making, for instance. The SA fans understand this stuff; they have the typing capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these keysets, to realize that they're not just "a keyset"- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike SA keysets truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the feeling of clackery in MiTo's existencial catchphrase "MiTo signing off, goodbye Geekhack," which itself is a cryptic reference to the terror that SA owners had to live in, during the "DCS time". I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Pulse's genius design unfolds itself under their fingers. What fools... how I pity them. And yes by the way, I DO have a Godspeed tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the clackers' eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 WPM of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.  :rolleyes:

Haha damn. Id like to see that godspeed tattoo.

I don't buy into keyboard meme meta, I got my first SA set just on the fact I liked the colours and used it for a fairly long time.
I recently received my Dasher/Dancer set so I'm sure that I will use them on a couple future boards I'm in GBs for just to see how they feel.

Never had an SA set, but I'm very interested in trying it out. Wish there was a meetup in my area so I could try before I buy. Oh well, I'll just stick with my cherry and DCS profile peasantry
