Seems you're just starting. Warning: I've spent 10 times more money on mechanical keyboards than I thought will be necessary.
  1. Layout. If you're a beginner: TKL, FULL SIZE, 75%, 65% (my recommendation: TKL or 75%). Do your own research and select something that fits your keyboard usage.
  2. Switches. This is hopeless, there are hundreds of them and I after trying a dozen or so (gateron brown, kailh box white, zilent 65, cherry Blue, ...) I'm still not sure what I want. That's why you'll need HotSwap keyboard.
Try:
  • DROP ENTR
  • EPOMAKER 84 key
I love AKKO 3087 (mine has cherry blue switches) but it is not HS.

Do any of you know any good linear Frankenswitches?
Frankenswitches or switch crossbreeds are switches that have been modded, like stem-switched or spring-swapped. some popular ones you might have heard of are ergo clears (Cherry browns and Cherry clears) or creamsicles (C3 tangerines and NovelKeys creams). do any of y'all know any good linear frankenswitches, no price limit. thanks!

GMMK Pro reservation question
So I have a question about GMMK Pro reservations on the glorious website. so as far as I know, until the flex batch is sold out you'd need to make reservations but if I wait out the rush do you think I won't have to reserve it and the purchase will be similar to the original GMMK boards? the reason I ask is because if any of you don't know you have to pay an extra 100$ to reserve it. if any of you have some speculation I'd love to hear.

Why are my config files downloading as windows explorer files?
I am following the steps on the website and various tutorials and everything is working except that when I download applet-mdflash and massdrop_alt_md_configurator, it downloads them as windows explorer files. mdloader-windows loads as a regular file, and this seems to be the only difference. I have not set this as the default way to download files, and it still works for one of the files, so I am very confused. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Drop ALT High Profile BUMMER!
Last year in May I purchased a Drop ALT High Profile through Amazon (noob I know) an its been great not gonna lie. I've recently purchased new stabs from zeal, foam, combined Tealios v2 stems with NK creams housing which I've tried on my buddies mode80 and they sound great. Also including dampeners for my Alt but yesterday when I came home from work I turned my pc on and had dinner but I noticed a burning smell which lead me to my keyboard and my USB-C was really hot. I disconnect it and smoke was coming from my ALT. When I opened the ALT my PCB was burnt. Now the left USB-C port doesn't work but the right one still does and all the RGB lighting works as well... Any solutions? (When I get home I'll take some pictures)
