mechanical keyboards

I’ve been reading about Cherry MX switches for a few years now and never took the time to read up on what the big deal was. The only mechanical keyboards I’ve used were an old Tandy thing and a bunch of the Apple ][ boards at school. They were all obnoxiously loud, echoing things that I didn’t care for as a kid, but as a child I wasn’t much of a typist anyway so my childhood opinion shouldn’t matter much today.

What’s the deal with mechanical keyboards?
