That may be true for some developers, just as it may be for many other people not used to working at home.
It is emphatically not true for me. I can be much more focussed and productive when I am at home than when I am in the office. I get a faster and more reliable Internet connection at home than in the office under the new company IT regime. I also get better tea, a better chair and a better office space. Working at home has been my default for quite a long time.

I somehow missed that survey. Otherwise I would have added that I'm missing my 1m by 2m office desk with nothing but legroom underneath. Here at home I'm rather constrained with my 30y old computer desk with a board underneath where my legs should go (I remember I used to have my printer there - that saved me a lot of room on top of the desk, although it didn't help my knees either). I keep hitting my shins on it.
As far as distractions go, I don't see much of a difference to the office. I expected that to be the greatest challenge but it really isn't. If anything, my spouse is making me work harder, not less.
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
He is one of the many late night show hosts on American TV that sit in front of a camera and say "Orange man bad" to rapturous laughter from an audience who are laughing not because it is funny but to register ideological support. No different from Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Fallon etc. Just go to the "trending" page of YouTube if you want to indulge in this propaganda as big tech is keen to push it on you.
The clip I saw, with him pointing out some of the obvious lies that a certain-coloured person who lives in a certain coloured house has told, did not look like propaganda; it looked like someone who is pissed off at being lied to.
I can get behind that, no matter the politics of the liar.
