I saw these switches on a deskthority wiki page and am wondering where I can get these switches.

I Forgot what a cherry MX orange was.
Was it a clicky (tactile clicky) version of a MX Grey?  Although clicky greys DO exist, but are probably as rare as super blacks....
Or a clicky version of a MX brown (lighter than blue?)

Blues and browns are the same spring.  Though clicky grays would be interesting.

Wouldn't clicky grays be greens?  The weighting would be about the same.

I thought greens and blacks had the same springs which is Cherrys medium spring with grays being their heavy

No, greens are around 80cn which is the same as linear grey and tactile grey. Blacks are 60cn.

The hirose orange are listed as linear on deskAwiki. besides that i have no clue.

Looks like they're just a tad softer than Blacks from the spring picture here: http://deskthority.net/wiki/File:Hirose_Cherry_MX_Orange_--_comparison_with_MX_Black_1.jpg

MX soft springs tend to be longer and have more turns, harder are a shorter with less turns.

At a guess I'd say 67g springs in vintage Blacks would feel practically identical.

Ah, no, theres a big difference between clicky greys (they do exist or did exist but are the rarest switch) and MX greens.

Greens encounter sharp resistence at the tactile bump, then drop off and keep close to the same resistance (it does increase but it's not really a sharp linear increase, it's very light) under the bump, making bottoming out extremely easy after you pass the bump.

Greys (both linear and tactile) have a sharp, linear increase in resistance that keeps increasing sharply  past the tactile bump.  The tactile bump is also encountered 'sooner' on greys (and clears).  So the force to bottom out on a grey is -much- higher than on a mx green.
