Default No love for the brown switches

I was SO excited when I finally saw the first low profile mechanical keyboard - only to realize it's only being offered with either red or speed (I think) switches.

Does anyone from the Corsair staff know whether there will be something for people like me who absolutely hate linear switches? Low profile that is - standard height mechanical keyboards simply make my hands hurt after prolonged use :(

Honestly, I'm not a fan or red or speeds either and I've brought this up many times before. It might be possible if the low profile design is popular enough for them to warrant other switch options for it. But trust me, we have people here that prefer brown or blue switches but we are definitely the minority.

Maybe the majority never knew any better? I'm thinking, when black switches appeared, everyone started buying such keyboards and kind of got used to the linearity.
I tried, and within five minutes the keyboard went back into its box...


I'm on this borderline failing, filthy bigass (it's so long I can't really game on it properly with my hands spread apart, grr) Chicony keyboard from ages ago, and I just could never find any viable replacement :(

And the regular height "mechanics" are just way too tall for me :(

Put me down as another fan of the brown switches.
