It’s kind of hard to put a finger on honestly. I have have many similar keyboards, corne, redox, unikeyboards diverge, kyria, none of theme were an issue.
I think the size of the keyboardio might be a factor - it’s pretty large compared to all of the other keyboards I mentioned.
Also, after using many column staggered and ortholinear keyboards. I think I’m coming to the conclusion in my keyboard journey that the benefits are a bit overrated vs the benefits of continuity between using a row staggered keyboard my laptop - iPad - and workstation. Muscle memory between all of my systems is something I want to improve upon moving forward.
Thanks for the answer Gary. I also think that often there is not enough thought about staying (somewhat) compatible with the non-geeky keyboard world. I am in the position that I do not need to share computers in 99.9% of the cases, but indeed I use a laptop while travelling or in different locations of the house, where I do not want to carry around a model 100 or another extra keyboard!
