It’s all in the Numbers

I’ve been reading some of the ongoing discussion about iWork ’08’s Numbers spreadsheet on Macintouch, and really, if you’re someone who works with 65,535+ rows in your spreadsheet on a regular basis (and you’re complaining that Numbers can’t hack it), then you’re probably using the wrong tool (ie, Excel). I’m still quite happy with Appleworks for most everything I do (I throw MySQL, Python and PHP at harder/bigger problems), but AppleWorks is not intel native and I’m trying to transition to NeoOffice, as AppleWorks’ only other transition strategy is probably to iWork’s Pages/Numbers/Keynote, which still leaves your AppleWorks databases unaccounted for, unless you throw a copy of FileMaker into the mix.
