I know having different layouts and different keycaps to fit every bill is expensive so I'm guessing the answer for those questions is no, but I'm gonna ask them anyway Smile

- Will there be tactile bumps on the F and J keycaps?

- Will a version with blank keycaps be available (like the prototype)?

- In the future, would a version with an ortholinear layout be possible?

- no.
- you'd have to make a compelling argument for it. It is very likely that we'll offer language-pack keycaps, but I personally don't fully understand the appeal of blank keys. But I'm all ears. The keycaps will be laser-etched, so in theory setting aside 1/100 sets and not etching them isn't exactly difficult. 
- no. If anything - and I'm not saying it will happen - an ANSI layout in the future is a plausibility, maybe. But this is granted the keyboard sells like hot cakes.
