System76 Launch Keyboard is fairly customizable. I know I've been unboxing pretty much all System76 products on here, and it might look like I'm a fanboy, but I'm not, BUT I LOVE THIS KEYBOARD!

    Two space keys is an awesome feature to have! I have a plain vanilla space key on the right and on the left it's shift if I hold it and ESC if I tap it.

    This does not seem to be an especially spectacular hotswap keyboard. The Drop Shift, Alt, and Ctrl all seem like competitors, as well as the Glorious GMMK. How is this any different? All are QMK compatible. This doesn't seem well researched . . .

    Its quite amazing that it took so long for software to mod the key layouts. I always found doing it in windows was a little harder than it should have been.

    If anyone's wondering why it comes with an alternate escape key that fits where capslock goes, there *is* actually a reason and it's not just "oh you can reprogram your keyboard however you want!"—mapping capslock to escape is actually a pretty common keyboard configuration amongst programmers who use vim (who are exactly the sort of people who would buy a keyboard from S76), in much the same way that, say, I map capslock to control because I use emacs.
    Nobody was wondering, by all odds...

    Having gone through 4 store-bought mechanical keyboards (all sold on, or given as a gift to friends, i didn't like cherry and gateron browns),
    & 2 custom mechanical keyboards that I own (with Gateron greens, & Zealio V1's, IDK if I'm ready for another just yet. So so tempting though.

    I ordered mine early on LAUNCH day and Still have not received it. Mind you not the most expensive Mechanical Keyboard I own or will own. Also not 285 when all said and done closer to 400+.
    But still cheaper than the Mechanical Keyboard + 10 key I built with CHERRY MX RGB BLUE.

    I don't know whether this would have been a better fit for Taran but, it does seem weird that Anthony's doing a keyboard that's made from macros. I guess it more is just how short-circuit works that led to this. Maybe an LTT featuring Anthony and Taran?

    Honestly, I myself don't see the point of this keyboard. People have been used to the keyboard layout for decades, I don't see people wanting to change that themselves. But as long as you love it and are willing to learn your own customized keyboard layout, then that's all that matters. I do love the clicky sound of it though uwu
