To fill the vaccuum of concrete information about the keyswitch lubricant to be used in the production run following the Chinese new year to address the chattering issue affecting some Model 01 owners, I’d like to open the floor to rampant, unbridled speculation (hopefully with the wisdom of people knowledgeable about such matters).
It seems if there were two keyswitch lubricants, “A” and “B”, and lubricant “B” was less conducive to chatter than lubricant “A” then there wouldn’t be a market for “A” at all… unless “B” has some other attributes in which it was inferior to “A”.
For instance, price. It could be the case that in terms of lubricating keyswitches, “B” is superior to “A” in all respects, and the tradeoff is simply the price of the lubricant.
However the tradeoff could be something along the lines of “the new lubricant eliminates chatter but it’s also only rated for 10 million key presses instead of 15 million keypresses like the old lubricant”.
Or it could be “the new lubricant eliminates chatter, but on the 1 millionth key press your keyboard will become sentient and plot your demise”.
