Ever since iOS has gotten all the love MacOS just doesn't seem to be as nice as it was before. If I am going to get a MacBook Pro. I want a portable workstation, with a portable Workstation OS not a half Desktop OS and Half mobile OS.

I haven't found a good OS for real work station work. Linux comes the closest. However it is still very Desktopy because it is trying to appease the grandma. Where it needs to appease people who wants to get real work done.

However the law shouldn't had been such a blanket ban, but more targeted towards people who abuse the service. Stipulations such as a minimum living time, in the building by the owners say 200 days a year. Rules to insure that safety and equality measures are taken place as AirBnB does have a problem with people excluding minorities. In essence to make sure people who are using the service are not playing by a different set of rules.
