Ok, as always, but I think we can have two situations:

1) People that are used to work at home, so the office is a well defined space, and all documents and books are located there

2) People (like me) that TRY to work at home, transferring DVD full of source to syncronize, USB Key to make activation, etc.

In the second case I think that it's really hard to be as productive as at work, some notes:
a) at home I have a 640Kbits ADSL, at work a 10Mbits fiber
b) at work of course the computer is faster and dircetly connected to the server with full source ( I always copy all source of the current project and remember at home that a similar code was written for another project...)
c) I don't have all tools (many are expensive and wants an activation key - like NuMega Bounds Checker)
d) It takes time to copy project, recompile at home, ...work... , copy modified files and resync at work (Ok I can use source control over internet but I prefer to leave source out of internet servers)
e) All books that I need are at work, independently from the number I've taken home.
f) I have a 17" monitor instead a 24" + 19"
g) The deskjet printer is sloooower then the network laser printer with Front/Rear
h) There always something interesting around...

I realize that less than 2 hours at home is a loss of time, I'd prefere to answer email, obviously surf codeproject, and read some magazine or manuals.

Over 2 hours... I don't known, I don't remember such a long time...
