I’ll cut to the chase; through a combination of unlikely discoveries, crazy hacks and the 90s BBS warez scene I’ve been able to port Lotus 1-2-3 natively to Linux – an operating system that literally didn’t exist when 1-2-3 was released!
If you want to hear how a proprietary application could be ported to new operating systems 30 years after release, read on!
This isn’t running through an emulator or a VM – this is a real port. Amazing work.
There’s probably even a few users still using lotus 123 out there..
Yes still using it ocasionnaly. But it’s 123 from smartsuite millenium (what a great office suite !), not this text-mode oldie 🙂 Anyway, congrats to Tavis Ormandy for this port 🙂
