Interesting news

Hello:

Saw this early today:

Original killer PC spreadsheet Lotus 1-2-3 now runs on Linux natively
As Google guru who ported it points out, the operating system did not exist when 1-2-3 came out in 1983

See:

And:

I used it everyday many years ago at work, till DOS got killed and W3.10 was installed on the few available PCs.

Maybe it is finally gettings it's dues?   8^D!

Re: Interesting news

I used to use Lotus as well, way back... in the 90's

Thanks for the heads-up. I've been using OpenOffice so long now that I may not want to change.

But it's good to know when I'm spruking the benefits of GNU/Linux. :-)

Re: Interesting news

My computer course in 1994 used Lotus 1-2-3 & WordStar as its primary software, when I got a computer for myself I used WordStar & WordPerfect, with As-Easy-As, a Shareware version of Lotus 1-2-3.

When I started on Linux, I used SC, (Spreadsheet Calculator), a simple spreadsheet for the terminal; didn't need a word prossesor, so just used an editor, but I did use sqlite occasionally, for simple record keeping - ah, those were the days! big_smile
