It's gone. I hear XMIT is working on a round 2 which I am looking forward to.
You can either buy clothes or buy keyboards, it's that simple. No one who is not very rich can do both. Pay no attention to your clothes and no attention at all to the mode, and buy your clothes for comfort and durability, and you will have the clothes money to buy keyboards.

Yep!:

We're adding a click leaf! This will give Alps-like audible and tactile feedback when typing.

He's also talking about offering a clicky-retrofit kit for existing owners.

I'm split on the issue, personally. I love klicky, klack keebs (or KKK). But Hall Effect switches are the most legendarily smooth switches, as they require no physical contact for actuation—just a magnet slightly shifting to alter the flow of electrons in an adjoining part. Adding a bump and/or click to such a subtly magnificently thing seems like, well:
