Quarrel Pro? Good gracious!  ohmy

Do we have anybody out there still using Visicalc, Supercalc, Lucid 3D or Javelin?

Maybe we should start a thread for people who still run vintage and classic apps? I'd love to know who they are, and what they're running.  Grin

Well, I still have Lucid 3D on my computer and until a few years ago used it when I needed to do something simple. To this day there's nothing faster. Unfortunately I did have to give up Desqview and Magellan when Windows came along.
