Not enough thumb keys. Bottom row should be symmetrical, with 3 keys per thumb. I'd like some alternatives to Ergodox and Moonlander, but all these companies are getting it wrong.
Unfortunately, designs like these are all variations of the alice-layout that is quite popular in the custom mechanical keyboard scene. Winkeyless layouts are more of an aesthetic choice.
There are safer ergo layouts that like the Noxary Valhalla that may gain attention once out in the wild. I personally use a Uni660, but definitely wish there were more boards like it readily available.
We need keyboard for people who want to use thumbs instead of pinkies, but do not want to go full ortho like Ergodox. Even regular non-split keyboard has it completely wrong: why does the space key has to be this big? Give me programmable keyboard with plenty of 1u or 1.25u keys in the bottom row.
I'm running YMDK split for over a year now and love the quality, hot swap and ability to program it, but need more keys in the middle (split 2.25u and 2.75u into more YMDK).
Thanks for sharing, that Uni660 looks pretty sweet. Cheers!
