I'm just the opposite; I like tactile feedback. I heard a story on NPR this summer about a company (in Louisville, KY, I think; can't remember the name) that specialized in refurbishing old keyboards so that they have the "old" feel, including the clicker and push back. I thought about getting one, but I admit that I prefer the wireless keyboard I use; every time I moved the keyboard the wire "shuffled" the papers on my desk.

Back in the 'olden' days, every time I changed jobs or keyboards the first
thing I would do was to flip the keyboard over and pull the wire on the
keyboard clicker...
