There's a lot of absolutes being thrown around. All of us in tech are very fortunate to have the ability to work from home, unlike a lot of other jobs.

I love remote working for many reasons (less time wasted commuting, more family time, less money spent on gas, less wear/tear on the car, etc.) but companies should be flexible and let people choose how often they wish to be in the office. There are those who want to go in, and let them come in. I figure a 2-3 day remote days per week is sufficient for most people, and reasonable.
