Ah, well that's the thing, see. They didn't.
At least, the Microsoft that people love to hate didn't. It was written
by their pretty-much independent Mac group.
And I can't think of anything I can (and want to) do in Excel that I
can't do with some simple Postscript. Which gives me an excuse to hack
on perl/Postscript insanity.
And yes, it sucks. 65536 rows is enough for anybody. Also see RISKS
