I must admit for me, any real world use of spreadsheet only began with Excel on Windows 3.x.

[Still only marginally related, sorry... :roll:] As I myself also begun any serious computing with Lotus 1-2-3 as well, I reckon you'll find interest in the following piece of news:
Lotus 1-2-3 was arguably the single application which made the IBM PC a success, and was launched nearly 40 years ago, on January 26, 1983. The Reg celebrated its 30th anniversary by firing it up in DOSbox, and we mourned when IBM finally killed it. It still has admirers today, and one of them is Google bughunter Tavis Ormandy, of Project Zero. Ormandy explains how he ported Lotus 1-2-3 natively to Linux...
