I just wanted to have an additional keyboard for my notebook and finally landed in this forum. After all that research, that brought me here. I wonder if I should by a keyboard with an orthogonal or staggered layout.
I think I have to say I really like 40% and 60% layouts (non-splitted) and I really like open source, so I think it will be one with the qmk software.
Why do I write in this forum?
I want to switch to the Colemak layout with Curl and Angle Mod
What I do like on the 40% layout, that you really don't move your hands, everything what you want you fetch trough layers. Apart from that, they look really cool in the orthogonal layout. In the staggered layout I like the style of the 60% a little bit more, furthermore you have a whole lot more options for them because they seem a lot more common. But style is not everything...
DreymaR wrote 4 years ago, that ortholinear is bad for the wrists when the keyboard is not splitted or hinged. Is this a common opinion throughout this forum? @DreymaR does your opinion has changed over time?
does someone has experience with krepublic? They seem to be relatively low cost in comparision to the other competitors?
