Working in the office: lots of distractions, constant meetings, phones ringing, mouse-clicking and keyboard punching, restricted internet connection, DELL PC with the cheapest peripherals, expensive food options within a 10 minute walk.

Working from home: comfortable chair, calm environment, more screen real estate, better keyboard/mouse, decent PC, gigabit internet connection, a fridge full of things I like.


In my case: somewhat slow remote desktop, tons of e-mails instead of short phone calls, and way too many distractions.

But saving 2 hours a day by not commuting kinda makes up for that.

And boy, did we ever need a decent IM -- but nobody wants to use the shitty Microsoft thingie. I'm counting the days until they give in :(
