I bought a mechanical keyboard. Like everyone else, in the middle of the pandemic, there was nothing better to do than buying stuff, and keyboards? they seemed great.

Alright. Got a Keychron. They're decently priced, not super expensive like a Rama (ha, more on that later), and apparently, they should be fine.

I learned how to type fast. From 32 wpm to 104 wpm.

I think it was last year when I got my first mechanical keyboard, driven by the enormous hype of it, I surrendered to my capitalist self and bought a Keychron K1 from amazon.

The K1 is a low profile keyboard, this means is not has high as other keyboards, compared with the apple magic keyboard the difference is not that dramatic.

But this doesn't feel like the real thing, Jitachi, and you're right, that's why I got another keyboard. So I got another Keychron, this time a K8 that promised a real mechanical experience with switched and all of that.

Englebart offered the keyboard as an example of a complicated input device. It takes considerable time and effort to learn touch-typing, he said, but once mastered, you’ll enjoy a lifetime of fast text input.

Why is it a good idea to learn touch typing?
(learning qwerty layout or any other)
