I've been rocking a Microsoft Natural keyboard for a decade. by Fullofkittens 09/26/2022, 6:49am PDT
It did help with some wrist pain I was experiencing due to typing with only 6 fingers like an idiot child. (I still do this.)

My office bought me that keyboard and I am currently using it at home. But now we are going back to the office 1 day a week and they're like "don't forget to bring your keyboard and mouse!" for the hoteling stations. Sooo, I'm not going to climb around back of the million cables I have snaking around in my office to do that every day, I'm just going to get something smaller I can put in my backpack. If that keyboard leads to my having an ultimate typing experience, I guess I'm open to that?

The experiences I have had with different keyboard keys were, I guess, yet another unexamined part of my largely unexamined life. The ones on my Natural keyboard are chunky and black. I have an external keyboard for a Macbook I bought ten years ago and that has little tiny keys. I don't like that keyboard but only because I hate using my Macbook and half the fucking time it doesn't recognize that the keyboard is even plugged in. If I close my eyes and picture my favorite typing experience, it's typing on my Dell XPS 15. I don't know if that provides any insight into what kind of keyboard user I am.

I feel like you just asked me if I am a whiskey drinker and I was like "Yes, I like Jim Beam." Now I am expecting a whole new universe of ways to spend money to my detriment.
