Your humble opinion.  My humble opinion is that even if people have a
very individual coding style, then that doesn't necessarily mean that
they'll work best at home.  If I'm at work, I have easier access to
"stakeholders" and colleagues who I can ask questions, and I have fewer
distractions.  But, see, that's just me.  I won't generalise from that
to saying that "working from home doesn't work", even though that's the
case for me.  You should do likewise.
