View Full Version : Name that program

While cleaning out some closets, I decided to fire up this little gem. Still works like it did back in 1988. Does the program in the first pic look familiar? The second one is a bit easier.

Yea, back before we had Wifi, USB, terabyte drives and even the World Wide Web, when business was using WordPerfect and Lotus 123, a company named Microsoft introduced a neat little program called Excel. Business turned up their collective nose at the toy computer with the "mouse" and declared it'll never last.

BTW, the computer will do a cold boot in 28 seconds.

Visicalc? I had an Apple IIe and I vaguely remember it.

I still have my original Mac SE in my crawl space. Hard drive is dead, so you have to boot from floppies. :( I also bought an SE30 with ethernet a few years ago, which will actually function as a web server.

Looks like Lotus123. But that was an IBM/PC program.??
