They went back to typewriter layout, and now claim that infrared keyswitches are the secret to ergonomics. Complete With Marketing Copy Capitalizing Every Word. It's so bad that I genuinely thought some fly-by-night Chinese manufacturer had stolen their domain and logo. But nope, it's still the same people.
So today I found out that I own a legacy TECK model. I have visited their site some time ago the last time I remapped the keys with the online utility, so I'm baffled they went back to the century old typewriter layout, it's somewhat like they abjured what they professed few years ago. Bah...
I suppose they expect to sell more units of this more conventional layout.
Also lots of mechanical keyboards from companies other than Truly Ergonomic work fine with Kailh switches.
So I think it's the crappy TE firmware and not the switches.
I like the layout though, so I persist with using it at work. I much prefer my Ergodox at home though.
