Microsoft Excel 5.x

Excel, from Microsoft, is a powerful spreadsheet application for Mac, Windows, and OS/2. Excel was first released for the Mac. When it was ported to Windows 2.x, they started at version "2.0" to one up current Mac version. There was never a DOS version. Instead, DOS and 8-bit platforms used the older Microsoft Multiplan. Excel was later bundled as part of Microsoft Office

Based on concepts from the granddaddy of all spreadsheets, VisiCalc, some of the spreadsheets it competed against and ultimately conquered include: Lotus 1-2-3, Quattro Pro, The Twin, VP-Planner, Ashton Tate Full Impact, Boeing Calc, Surpass Software System's Surpass Spreadsheet, SuperCalc, PlanPerfect and the German StarCalc (Today part of LibreOffice ).
