Is there a good spreadsheet program for OS/2? I will use it for personal things (like keeping track of my blood sugar level and my deductions on/in my paycheck, etc).
OS/2 Warp-ed to the very end.

Erm, ever thought of entering "spreadsheet OS/+2" into Google's search field?

Your choices are the following:

1. Mesa 2 from Sundial Systems: extremely fast and capable of handling larger sheets than Excel. Mesa is scriptable via REXX and can be used for real-time feeds. Not cheap, but worth it (I won a copy last December :-)). Go to http://www.sundialsystems.com.

2. Lotus 123 from Smartsuite: Do I need to comment on the mother of modern spreadsheet software?

3. StarCalc: part of StarOffice, free. Does a good job, too, though it's a bit sluggish. Well, it's StarOffice.

4. Papyrus Office: contains a spreadsheet. Not as feature-complete as other products. Fast. The concept needs getting used to since you are actually inserting tables into the wordprocessor. Visit http://www.rom-logicware.com.

What is actually the current status of Papyrus Office? Reason for asking is that they used hell of lot time to translate it and then there was the thing about a proper demo version? Is it worth trying? Does it handle documents from M$ Office and Smartsuit?

Well, you ask the "right" person. >:-|

ROM Logicware announced version 9 "to be released soon" about April or May I think. Nothing happened yet. If you order version 8.x now, you'll get a free update to version 9 though.

It's definitely worth trying: fast, needs extremely few resources and is quite reliable. According to ROM Logicware they wanted to improve import filters for Mickeysoft, too. Don't know about Lotus.

An English demo of version 8.23 is available at http://www.rom-logicware.com/e_demos.htm.

The problem is that you often can't count on what Mr. Ramps says, unfortunately. (Just ask the Warpstock teams, both USA and Europe.) So I'm waiting for the new version to be available before I decide to spend my money on it.

I just had a look at their (German) web site and it has been updated on August 2. They state that they have a beta version running quite well and that the GA is about to be released soon.

Okey, so it going slow. Pitty! Since I know that there was people here in Sweden offered themself to translate the application into Swedish and this during Warpstock Europe 1999; nothing has happened since then!

Too bad!
