I've been thinking that I want a mechanical keyboard, currently I'm using a logitech G510 which is perfect with it's 18 programmable keys (I'm using it with this) but I hear a lot of people drooling over mechanical keys, especially programmers, and I do certainly write a lot and on occasion I code too. Not to mention gaming of course.
But one thing I really cannot think of losing is the 18(x3) programmables, I don't care about the rest of the features, but being able to open folders, switch workspaces and navigate through my browser with single buttons changes everything. Not to mention it is very efficient.
Media keys are also always nice (Play/Pause, Volume wheel)
The Corsair Vengeance K-95 was the first keyboard I found that seems to match my needs.
- Does it work with Linux? (If so, how well?)
- Can I map custom commands (like terminal commands) to the G keys?
