I have respect for the opinion that firewalld should be disabled
although personally I am  far from convinced, there are some arguments
for that. But when you say it's as simple as "I do not see any point
in a firewall for a Workstation" I feel that you argumentation is too
sloppy to be worth considering. Full stop.
