It has been a sacrifice of quality, a barter of software — systems have never complemented each other, have never offered relief. All programs have instead been disparate, demanding that you choose one and avoid all others. Companies have forever battled, trying to siphon away all profits, all interests. And you’ve been without convenience for decades. There was no compatibility. There was no ease. You were forced instead to choose a platform that never fully satisfied you, unable to offer all of the applications you craved (they were limited by their manufacturers, unable to be properly supported). A computer wasn’t complete. It was merely… ordinary.
Now, however, you’re seeking something more — and Excel allows you to have it.
Established first for the Macintosh system in 1985, Excel was a spreadsheet software that offered unique calculations and then impressive memory capabilities (those have, naturally, been increased throughout the years). It was heralded as an innovation, with many wishing to indulge in its programs. But there was a concern for this: it was intended only for Mac platforms. Certain users would therefore be denied the opportunity to explore its prowess, it was believed.
Such a belief was incorrect.
A mere two years later the Excel 2.0 was launched — for Windows. Suddenly the two most popular systems of the world were able to be connected, sharing a program that enabled numbers to be fully understood. Individuals no longer had to refuse the spreadsheet ease. They could instead conquer it, no matter what system they favored. Success was achieved.
And it has continued.
As of 2010, Excel can still be applied to both Macintosh and Windows: marking it uncommon among programs. Few ideas have offered such malleability, with companies trying still to flood the market with separate software and codes. This application, however, can be offered to the major platforms — and that ensures support for all.
Compatibility has finally been found and it will always remain.
