Mechanical keyboard switches: linear, soft, click. What is the difference?

I intend to buy a keyboard with mechanical switches. Some are available with different types of switches.

"I believe that over the time, I've used all of them (keyboard switch types), and although one can feel the difference after switching from one to another, it hardly mattered in the long run. Key distribution was always more important.

I really can't see it making any difference that's worth fussing about.

The sound of the key upon pressing can be sometimes important. I'm still searching for a keyboard which will have that distintive feel upon pressing, while still being quiet (my home workdesk is in the bedroom, which can present problems if someone is sleeping). Same goes for the mouse."
