I'm with the soft mushy crowd. I must pound the keyboard (in
comparison to other people), because when I'm on a clacky keyboard,
people in cubicles around me start commenting on what my speed is
like, etc. I don't like drawing attention to my typing (let alone
distracting my workmates), so a squishy keyboard works for me.

I've been pretty happy with a Dell keyboard for the last two years.
The keyboard on my IBM laptop is too noisy, but I like the feel of it.
I don't know if regular IBM keyboards are noisy, too.
