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.

Sad but its time

The Smartsuite hasn't been updated in a while. Still I think I like it better than MS office. BTW, the recent versions of it (9.8) did not contain Lotus Notes, which is sold separately.

Because Notes is a shit mail client, that redeems itself only when connected to Domino with all the extra features...

By this time GMail and have a widely simpler and more functional interface than anything for mail authoring.(Don't get me started on the POS that is Outlook 2010)
