I voted for the BROWN, since they are the best for touch typing! Their advantages are:
1. Tactile: You receive a tactile feedback as the key actuates which is crucial for touch typing because without it you might not actuate a key when typing fast
2. Low actuation force: The brown have (together with the red) the lowest actuation force of all Cherry MX switches (45 g force needed), with the light weighting allowing for more rapid actuation and making touch typing very comfortable and less fatiguing than stiffer switches such as the Black or Clear (60 g force needed).
3. No click: Clicky switches add a deliberately louder ‘click’ noise to the existing tactile bump, making them noticeably louder than other mechanical switches, which are already louder than rubber domes, so these switches can be a bit disruptive in close working conditions. The click noise is supposed to add an additional audible typing feedback so that the typist knows when a switch was actuated. But this feedback is not needed, since the tactile feedback of the brown is more then enough. The additional "click, click, click" sound is just annoying.
So if you are searching for the perfect touch typing sensation vote for the CHERRY MX BROWN! They are soft for rapid and fatigue-proof touch typing but yet tactile so you can touch type with confidence, and since they are without "click" they don't get on your nerves with that old-school "click, click, click, click" sound in your office!
