@Pinedhuitre 2A What do you consider complex today. But in the future, it can become as easy as child's play. I advise you to always observe the context of the reality of that time when technology is not the same as it is today.

@Chraan Did they not have them then? I didn't use it until the late 90s, maybe 2000, and they had charts then so I presumed they'd been included since the start. Every day is a school day.

Before Excel, clunky, DOS-based 'Lotus 123' was the industry standard for spreadsheets. It got the job done, but it was cumbersome to use. Excel was a breath of fresh air. Same thing with MS Word vs. Wordperfect for DOS. That laptop he was using probably cost around $4,000.

@Sk K well, you're right. But my last laptop was bought in 2013, and in 2014 I bought an I-pod tablet, in 2017 I use smartphones only for my work... In ten years a PC became obsolete and is no more in use... So imagine how amazing is the technology advance is! I do remember how new and strange it was to me that I am no more chained to the power cord, and I am free from home! That was really cool to do the job in the seashore in my car, or to combine travel with job! The working day became somewhat between an endless vacation, I was so much happy! Just imagine the same salary but I jump in a jet airliner and after a long 9 hour flight I am in Moscow enjoying 4 star hotel and historical museums, theatres... In December 2017 I spent the New year vacations in St.Petersberg, that awesome...and all the time you are nominally at work, you really work, you receive the payment. But no more dull window and working table... It's revolutionary

I wouldn't say "They nailed it from day one". Because it's an ad from 1992, the year Microsoft released Office 3, including Excel 4. So there have been a few previous iterations to improve upon. The first versions were Macintosh only though. If I'm not mistaken, Excel 3 was the first to release for both Macintosh and Windows at the same time.

I started my career posting to ledger cards on a mechanical accounting machine. It broke about one month before we converted to our first computer system and accounting software. My task was to use Lotus 123 v1A to emulate the input and output (via large 17" matrix printer) onto those ledger cards to complete and close the month so the new system could start with verified balances. What fun!

This...this was the decade for me. I was a hard-core Lotus 123 fan and built spreadsheets for my company, but when Excel hit the scene and I begrudgingly made the change, it opened a whole new world. I've been involved with the reporting, programming and database world since the 80s, but the decade of the 90s was the most enjoyable as far as my career. I was getting better by leaps and bounds with Excel, building simple databases, digging under the hood of our company's midrange computer, and just having a hell of a good time overall. It was an exciting time of discovery when the industry was still relatively new and possibilities seemed endless. Then I got moved into system support and it all went to hell. 🙂

I learned Lotus 123 in University in 1991. MS Excel seemed advanced technology at the time. But as a finance person, I'm sad that I can no longer make a presentation like the video and have everyone think I'm a whizkid.
