It seems that computer users are divided up into one of several keyboard camps. The most vocal camp is the really loud and clacky IBM Model M crew who manage to find every single post about keyboards and say "JUST GET A MODEL M OMG!!!". Then there are the laptop style scissor-key camp who enjoy slight feedback, but not too much. Of course the ergonomic split-key camp and the Microsoft/Logitech keyboards need to be counted as well. What do you like? For the record, the Optimus is fairly soft, but with a good amount of resistance.
