Hmm. On <http://www.versions.com/>, it says there is an SGI version of Excel!
If this is true, then perhaps MS is actually embracing Unix (which you wouldn't guess from FoxPro/Unix, designed only for character-mode SCO Xenix for x86 hardware). Sure would be nice to see a GUI Unix version of FoxPro. If they can do it for Excel, then who knows... :)
