O BOY! CHERRY SWITCHES!?!?!!? NEVER SEEN THEM LOLOLOL jk man, but gateron / cherry are pretty much identical, except you pay more for cherry because of brand name. Both are boring IMO, and I won't buy a board with soldered cherry / gateron in them. With so many options out there, its like going to the ice cream shop and buying vanilla. If you like that, cool, but I like something more interesting personally.
