No !   I remember for some reason we got a single IBM PC into the lab at HP which the keyboard made a racket in the open-plan office.  Fortunately HP released the Vectra some time later which had a much better tactile feel and was quiet !

keyboards from the 1980s that had a great tactile feel and were easy
on the joints.  They were great for work involving frequent typing
like documentation and software development.  When I threw out my PS/2
computer I kept the keyboard for my other Windows computers.  I could
work for hours on them and never have RSI problems, unlike newer
keyboards.

Nice keyboards. At work some years ago we got into clicky keyboards.  I went for this one:
