Are these linear, clicky or tactile?  The actuation distances look to be copying the Cherries of the same colour but maybe not.

800 million is a crazy high number of clicks - more than 10 times most switches :eek:
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Ah, yes, that sounds more like it.

Thank you for the correction :)
