For shits and grins, Bozos, er I mean Bezos could easily give a cool $500K to every man, woman, and child living below the poverty line and he’d still have deep pockets.

Many if us in the business world (e.g. engineering where a few essential apps like Soidworks or Altium are the standard) will pay whatever it takes. While 95% of my apps are macOS (including the app we develop and sell to our customers), some industries are locked into a standard. I'd LOVE a real-world macOS native alternative for Solidworks (including macOS native Solidworks!), but given reality of the world, this hopefully will be palatable.

The big issue is that while there are employees who can manage high levels of productivity from home, there are a large cohort that are unproductive and hidden under the current work from home situation.
I feel that apple must have some way of measuring this difference in output, but are being too polite to just come out and say it.
Plus, from the outside, I think that apple makes what they do look easy. When in actuality the high level of integration between software, hardware, and between devices requires next level coordination between teams that is not sustainable in the work at home world we find ourselves in right now.
We'll see in a few years time if companies that embraced the work from home do well, or become the latest fad that got a lot of hype but faded away because they missed the next wave while emailing from the kitchen table.
