So I guess this is happening
@hund Why are folks avoiding them? Are Kailh or Gateron more commonly preferred? I always heard Cherry MX had the "better" switches, though I very well may be falling prey to marketing.
@rho They're different, not necessarily better or worse. They all have their pros and cons. :)
Most Gateron and Kailh switches are cheaper, which is a large factor for a lot of people. Gateron are generally a bit smooter than Cherry, but have a little bit more wobble instead. Gateron and Kailh comes in more variations as well.
And being different from mainstream is important as well! ;)
