Apple Apple Computer without VisiCalc would have been an entirely different company. VisiCalc, the first electronic spreadsheet, was a major cause of the success of the Apple II, and attracted the attention of IBM to the microcomputer market. Read about VisiCalc at creator Dan Bricklin's site and a brief history at Braeburn.

I once ran the old vc.exe, and was amazed by it's small filesize and speed. The core functionality of modern spreadsheets is already in vc, but it is smaller and faster beyond imagination.
