It is the case for mine.  The clicky version uses the Cherry MX Blue
keyswitches, but they make a "silent" version that uses the Cherry MX Brown
keyswitches, and that one is defintely mushier feeling, although not as bad
as the standard rubber dome PC fare.

A co-worker bought a silent model a few weeks ago, and I don't like the
feel anywhere near as much.  The Blue keyswitches sound/feel just like my
Model M, but require 2/3rds(?) the force to actuate.


if everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.
