Being a consultant my company workstation is a notebook - a freaking 8 core beast due to the requirements of the current project.
The prototype board, its programmer and the CANcase come from the company, just the latter costs several paychecks.
I use the company's equipment + one or two things I have in house due to availability and cost, some licenses are sold only to companies and cost several thousand euros (or hundreds of thousands in some cases).
Basically I provided my PC monitor to get the same 2-screen setup I use at work and just a bit more. My coworkers working on dSpace simulators (racks that cost in the range of the MILLION euros) are not that lucky, but the customers they work for are closed. I have a couple coworkers at home with whole car dashboards and several power supplies and oscilloscopes in the living room right now.

My pet, pet peeve is when people use the term "exponential" without knowing what it actually means. Something is "exponentially" bigger than something else is a particularly meaningless statement. The authors of this paper make note that the growth of infections over time is initially exponential then tapers to a power curve. The theory, to paraphrase, is we're not a homogeneous collection of perfectly spaced, single network cellular automaton.
I have in the past worked from Home when I needed to work on some document. Never an issue.
So with school being closed in Germany, I decided to work from home and to maintain social distancing
Day 1 : Single Monitor (compared to 2+1) sucked. VPN connection Sucked more. Daughters Tik Toking was getting on my nerves
Day 2. Changed Wireless to Wired internet and still VPN sucked big time . Ban on tik tok lead to a very angry and bored teen which made me fear for my life.
Day 3 : Drove early to work . Still social distancing as 70% of workforce in Home. All issues of Day 1 and Day 2 resolved.
Too much of good is bad,mix some evil in it
Australian TV soap Neighbours has announced it will not film this week as a precaution, after reports suggested a person working on the show had come into contact with someone who tested positive for Covid-19.
"These people looked deep within my soul and assigned me a number based on the order in which I joined." - Homer
The only reason I know that show exists is i was looking for a TV program with a lot of seasons to do testing of my TMDB ("the movie database") library. It looked terrible, and the more i found out about it the more surprised i was that it is actually filmed, much less watched.
