Quite a few people seem to be working on trains during their commute. I
have to say that I've never been able to concentrate with so much noise,
motion, and distraction going on, and I don't see myself able to produce
one coherent commit let alone more than one. I once worked in a car for one
hour to solve a customer emergency. For some reason, looking at my computer
screen while in a moving vehicle made me dizzy for hours afterwards. The
code I wrote worked (miraculously) but on further examination after the
fact, it was some of the most atrocious code I've ever seen. Kudos to all
who can get real work done while on board a plane, train, or automobile. :-)
