After we got the order to work from home back in March 2020, I took the second Thunderbolt display I taken to the office back home again (taking it to the office in the first place was part of a plan to teach myself to work with one monitor only in hopes of eventually transitioning from a MacBook to an iMac for personal use).
Almost a year and a half later I’m not only loving working on two monitors again (three if you count the laptop), but I’m dreading the eventual return to the office. The last 17 months of peace and quiet have been a godsend for productivity, and I can’t help but wish plague and pestilence upon those who keep touting the wonders of “collaborative, open, and exciting” office space for software development (have you ever noticed that the people who think those environments are great all have doors that they can close?).
Anyway, this is my humble work/personal computing space as of August 2021. The laptop is my work computer and Mac mini is beneath the desk. Switching from one to the other is pretty much disconnecting and connecting a single Thunderbolt cable.
