Lotus 1-2-3 Bites the Dust

May 22nd, 2013 · No Comments · News

Another good thing comes to an end.  IBM has announced that Lotus 1-2-3, the spreadsheet that changed the world, will be retired on September 30, 2014.  Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols’s article for ZDNet.com gives the details and some of the history of what gave rise to today’s Excel.  Do you know that Lotus commands (e.g., @sum(b1..b80)) work in Excel?
