I'm not seeing anything different. Everything they've been making recently looks to still be there.

I just bought another 200 clicky switches and some stabilizers from them very recently as well.

I don't think any of those have been made for some time. I don't know of any recent lineup changes.

Hapi:
I don't know how long these keyboards are retired. But they don't have a full-size keyboard for PCs now. But we need to be surprised and a new product will come. After all, the current design is already very obsolete. In addition, the glossy plastic is not practical and will probably discourage many potential customers.

What's obsolete about it? A keyboard is a keyboard. I routinely use keyboards from the 80s.

I haven't cracked open any of my fullsize boards, but if the controller is anything like in the mini boards (it is probably identical), you can change the key mapping by removing and/or soldering in resistors. The Mac versions work just fine in Windows though. The biggest annoyance is some of the modifiers are reversed. I forget which, Windows key and alt maybe.

I love the glossy plastic, especially being that it is made of polycarbonate, so I know that it is actually durable.

Hapi:
The design is outdated. A bite of vintage keyboards have a contemporary design, such as focus keyboards. I don't care much about design if the keyboard is good. But there are not many such enthusiasts.

+ Glossy plastic is not practical: fingerprints, reflections and scratches.
