What's your preferred keyboard size for your main keyboard (that's also programmable)?

I'm collecting data for a future project. Please don't mind the ISO-layout in the example images, it's not relevant here.
@hund Personally I don’t mind the ISO‑layout cuz that’s a proper layout. 😺
@kmicu I know, I just don't want to anger the weirdos. ;)
@hund You "forgot" 80%/split
@tfb I'm going with something 'common' for my first product. :)
@hund 60% :D
@hund What’s your plan? :)
@Ghosty A mainstream prebuilt keyboard with premium quality, QMK, hotswap, underglow and all that for a (hopefully) decent price. :)
@hund How do you want to accomplish that?
Sounds pretty time intensive (especially the "prebuild" part :D)
@Ghosty It's called being naive. :P
@hund You? Naive? What drugs do you take?
I want them ;P
@hund Unironically my favorite, 75%, isn't on the poll. :(
@eviloatmeal That's a far to uncommon layout for me to support right now. :)
@hund 80% for me please.
@hund All of them got the useless capslock tho 🤔
@Unairedspecifics The keycodes has nothing to do with the size and layout. :P
@hund would be neat if it were converted into two buttons instead 😇
@Unairedspecifics It's 1.5U large. It's not possible, but with the QMK firmware you can make it do multiple things in various clever ways.
@danyspin97 That's way far away on my roadmap! :D
If I didn't use my main keyboard for work, I'd probably prefer 80%.
Work involves a lot of numerical data entry, though, and I'm much faster at that with a number pad than I am with just the number row, so I'd be forced to go with 100%.
@ajdunevent I'm planning on offering a complementary numpad/macropad as well. It's going to look just like the keyboards. :)
@hund Previously 60%, now 40% OLKB but that's not an option (Why does Mastodon only allow 4 options?)
@trawzified The exotic sizes and layouts is a project that's far down the road. :)
@hund Oh, just read the comments and I didn't realize you were actually going to build some! Thought it was just general research.
