CNVideos : And Excel remains the business world's standard to this day.

Brian Andrews : Jared Jaylor's other predicitions, "DOS in entrenched, nothing will replace it!",  "56k modems are everywhere!",  "My children's children's children will be using Palm devices"

AirScholar : Wow ! Almost 4 minutes of non stop babbling by Microsoft. Thats the longest CC has let anyone talk.

Sir Knight : You're making my life difficult Gary!

Lothar Scholz : Wow, this is from 1988 and they had really modern flat design in DOS applications. Great Scott.

David Griffiths : The demos between Excel and Lotus show with Excel won. Excel was introducing functional differences and a proper GUI. Lotus had an expensive add-on for printing .

eep : Always and Quatro is the only one that allows you to merge text and graphics.... in 1988???!!! Naaah REALLLY? Bullcrap

remingtonh : Full Impact looks way more impressive and powerful than even the latest version of Excel..

Animal Crossing : ✨And this is why Excel made it and other programs did not. It is a better spreadsheet.👍🏻☕️⌨💼😃✨

remingtonh : Why is that Price Waterhouse accountant using a Mac for spreadsheets? Everyone knows PCs are for real business.

Thomass Trivetti : anyone out there still using multiplan? haha

cmdfanxp : #ExcelSupremacy

Andy Frueh : Accounting chief at a firm I worked for used 1-2-3 for DOS long after the entire company moved to Windows 95 and Excel.  It was a pain to support that, but he had a ton of macros that he either wouldn't or couldn't rewrite.  So it did hang on for a while at some places.  Longer than it probably should have done.  Especially the DOS version.

Yankee Doodle : I wonder how financial modeling was done on this old software.

Adi SGH : Excel really looked better than 1-2-3, but 30 years later and it's still a piece of garbage.

kz1000ps : How is Stewart always so tight on time? Every moment of every episode, Stewart is fighting the clock. Oye

bastardtubeuser : i cant believe Jarad Taylor is in this, haha.

The Widow's Son : The best program about the huworld huwide huweb.

Adi SGH : Spreadsheet with a keyboard... it must have been exhausting.

John Malcolm : Fucking Huwindows 98

Titus OneTen : White nationalist spread sheets

eep : Ya know what always blows me away about Computer Chronicles? It's how seemingly side-show and disrespected Kildall is by Stewie ...

Best Korea : “The Jews are keeping the Huwite man down.” -Jared Taylor
