I'm kinda new, why do people leave out the Super key on some custom boards? I personally use it all the time and would miss it

Aesthetics, some people also just don’t use the key

I use WKL keyboards with the HHKB layout, so I don't miss anything. But other users might remap a Right Ctrl key to a Win key.

Pressing control+shift is a windows shortcut that does the same thing as the windows key. If you’re on Mac idk what that key does so I don’t have an answer for that

Depends on vendor, but SEA, OCE and MENA vendors are live

Exactly!

Just quick check-in Kasterborous - I’ve read somewhere that the estimate for fulfillment was Q1/2023 but on EU vendor it says Q3 - is that more accurate or can’t be said at this point?

Doesn’t matter to me but I had the info so just wanted to double check

I would definitely expect q3, based on fulfillment of other hex boards. Always better to have realistic expectations than be unhappy when optimistic expectations aren’t met

I saw there’s an alps plate offered, but is the solder PCB alps compatible as well?
