sorry to get back here so late,
and for the wrong assumption for MX switches.
i haven't been doing the keyboard thing for that long, especially compared to many others on geekhack.
yes, brown is very close to topre... but those are the only two i have even used! cherry blue is the only major one i'm missing (but that's on order) (ignoring black, which i dont think i really want), but none of the other ones are here with me, so i get to use them all at once in february.
