The Logitech K860 is a nice ergonomic keyboard with a curved design. While this type of layout might take some time to get used to, it reduces wrist strain and is very comfortable to type on once you get it right. The board is well-built and features negative angled feet as well. It features typical scissor switches, which are very similar to the Apple Magic Keyboard or the Logitech MX Keys.
The Logitech ERGO K860 is a decent keyboard for mixed usage. This ergonomic keyboard is designed for office workers who want to reduce wrist strain thanks to a curved-board design and a negative angle when typing. The keyboard's scissor switches aren't the best for gaming and since you can't program macros, it won't be ideal for programming either.
The Logitech ERGO K860 isn't designed for gaming. The scissor switches have a low actuation force and short pre-travel, but they require a lot of force to get passed the pre-actuation bump. The board's shape and size also won't be the best for gaming.See our Gaming recommendations

The typing experience is great but might feel a bit odd for some people at first. The layout of the keys isn't typical and they are separated in a way where you're obligated to type the "right way".
