I thought I’d try a 60%, split layout keyboard, so I ordered an Ultimate Hacking Keyboard
TL;DR I’m not keeping it.
The split layout isn’t for me. It feels like one more thing to adjust and I’m not sold on the ergonomic advantages. I’ve been using a Happy Hacking Keyboard for a while and I love it. I’m not even sure why I tried anything else. Probably because the UHK is so damn customizable. I tried customizing it every way I could think of but nothing felt right. Also, I’m sure that having to switch between UHK and HHKB layouts between work and home would drive me nuts.
And I just can’t get over how much I love the HHKB’s Topre switches.
So I bought a second HHKB and that settles it.
