Features, Office "The first killer app was VisiCalc. This early spreadsheet turned the Apple II from a hobbyist toy to a business computer. VisiCalc came with room for improvement, though. In addition, a new architecture and operating system, the Intel-based IBM PC and MS-DOS, also needed a spreadsheet to be taken seriously. That spreadsheet, released in early 1983, would be Lotus 1-2-3, and it would change the world. It became the PC's killer app, and the world would never be the same. On May 14, IBM quietly announced the end of the road for 1-2-3, along with Lotus Organizer and the Lotus SmartSuite office suite. Lotus 1-2-3's day is done." Impressive 30 year run.

And to save and exit, it's not "[F7]ny" - I click the File tab, which bizarrely takes over the entire screen with a complex control panel, find "Save As" which exits the control panel for the text editor again and then brings up a dialog box, and so on. Weirdness gets worse every release.

ctrl+s stopped working under newer MS Office versions? (luckily(?), I really don't know, don't have a way to quickly check ;) )
