I ended up grabbing the True fox bare bones kit. I'm glad this happened to be the one that caught my eye because it's a freakin great deal. $135! Makes up for the huge L on the keycap drop.

Nice! I had to go with an assembled kit. Not the switches I really wanted....but still glad I finally got a Whitefox.

No switches/leds/keycaps or USB included. The only thing I'm not crazy about is I have to go with the truefox layout, but hopefully it's something I can get used to

Truefox with Gatreon Blues.
Never used Gatreon switches so little concerned there but willing to try it.

Gateron switches are in many people's opinion the best Cherry clone. And when it comes to blues I actually prefer Gateron over Cherry. They're awesome

I read good things. Many echo what you say.
Either way we are both lucky today. Given that the next drop may not be for some time only 153 got Whitefox boards today.
I had to pull into a parking lot and get the drop on my phone cause traffic was bad.
Enjoy your build!

I'm hesitant about it, will definitely take some time to get used to.

I think I will make some backspace mistakes for a bit. Aria would probably have been my first choice. but I see no reason the Truefox won't work.

It's not. For me the backspace issue will be the biggest headache. On the Truefox the backspace is in a non standard location, one row down. On the Aria the backspace is in the normal top row.
one or the other is fine, but I work at multiple stations in a given day or at computers they do not allow remote log in. So I will be using normal keyboards then go back to using a non standard layout.

They do. Or rather they were in the actual drops so no reason to think different for these.

If yours comes with that little card, you could probably scan it and have edit it to be background-worthy! I agree it is a cool little graphic

Probably yeah, I live like one state away from their warehouse so once it ships I'll probably have it within 2 days (fingers crossed). I can scan it for you, but I'm not really that great at photo editing lol.
