« on: Wed, 22 January 2020, 10:39:23 »
Whats changed in the last few years?

Cream switches?

I think that a lot of the old guys have settled in with whatever their personal favorite(s) is (are), and aren't really energized to pursue the latest and greatest new thing.

It really does look like Unicomp will put out a new SSK in the next couple of months, that is a big deal for a lot of people.
"I never understood wind. I know windmills very much, I have studied it better than anybody. I know it is very expensive. They are made in China and Germany mostly, very few made here, almost none, but they are manufactured, tremendous if you are into this tremendous fumes and gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world, right? So the world is tiny compared to the universe. So tremendous, tremendous amount of fumes and everything. You talk about the carbon footprint, fumes are spewing into the air, right spewing, whether it is China or Germany, is going into the air. A windmill will kill many bald eagles. After a certain number, they make you turn the windmill off, that is true. By the way, they make you turn it off. And yet, if you killed one, they put you in jail. That is OK. But why is it OK for windmills to destroy the bird population?" - Donald Trump - Turning Point USA speech - 2019-12-22

Everyone buys Durock T1 instead of putting together Holy Pandas. Durock also made a counterpart to linear Gateron Inks (if only because they hold grudges against each other).

Switch-mounting plates made of brass, cut with slits (like a living hinge) to be flexible, and mounted between sheets of flexible material such as rubber or Sorbothane for more damping.

QMK firmware sets the norm, and DIY keyboard features get adapted to how QMK's built-in support does it.
Sideglow, RGB backlight and Kailh hot swap-sockets have got mainstream. (Backlight even though nobody uses backlit keycaps, but people want it nonetheless)

I'm glad that LEDs are at least at a point past the "RGB everything cuz im a gamerz" stage. Feels more tame and at least somewhat less gaudy now.

Slits(or 'relief cuts') are also a great improvement to acoustics imho. I'm glad this trend started when it did, because when I started in the hobby I didn't have the means to really make my own sound improving plates/foams/liners/etc. to the quality I'd like.

Gateron Ink are said to be comparable to Cream.

Gotcha, which Inks are comparable? I see a bunch of different Ink's here..

In general, the feel and price/quality ratio of all the Gateron Inks are thought to be comparable to Cream. So the comparable Inks could be chosen based on switch weight:

NovelKeys Cream - Linear | 4mm travel | 2mm operating | 55g actuation | 70g bottom out

Gateron Black Inks Linear | 4.0mm travel | 60g Actuation | 70g Bottom Out
Gateron Silent Black Inks Linear | 4.0mm travel | 60g Actuation | 70g Bottom Out
Gateron Red Inks Linear | 4.0mm travel | 45g Actuation | 60g Bottom Out
Gateron Yellow Inks Linear | 3.4mm travel | 60g Actuation | 67g Bottom Out
Gateron Blue Inks Clicky | 4.0mm travel | 60g Actuation | 70g Bottom Out
