I bought this keyboard after being shown it by the CM stand guys at the i53 LAN.
So the cool light features are awesome, but one major oversight- for all practical applications just a steady backlight is more useful than keys that are off by default but react to being used.
Solution: Make settings where keys are dimly backlit by default, but brighten up in reaction upon being hit. All the existing reactions could exist as programs, but the default state is low light rather than off. This would allow us to enjoy the cool light patterns, but no longer at the cost of usability.
