No; to the best of my knowledge, I have never used a Model M, so I am
not competent to hold an opinion on it.  Based on what I've seen on the
list, though, I doubt I'd like it much; I usually don't care for
keyboards with tactile events occurring partway through key travel, and
the impression I've formed is that the Model M has that.

The best keyboard - in my opinion, of course, which caveat really
applies to most keyboard quality discussions - was one I used on a
Symbolics Lisp Machine back in...the late '80s, I think it was.
