IME, the changes are quite subtle for those who aren't "in the know"
-- except for the non-membrane one ;-)

For example, the membrane thickness change is easy to feel if you have
the two kinds handy, and touch & compare them. Without a comparison
point, I can't tell one from the other.

Is there an easy way to identify which "generation" of keyboard it is?
Something we can ask when we're getting a problem report?
