Absolutely right. Even with the impressive progress Macs have made into the Enterprise, in large corporations, Excel and Powerpoint are still king. There is no question we'll start using this at work. It will be a huge benefit.
Ah. They fixed that in Excel 2012. On Windows 7, it's pretty impressive. Thanks. I've not got anything against Parallels, but it's always good to see what someone who's used both thinks, in case I'm missing out on something!
I hear you. Excel for Mac seems to only make use of one core on my eight core machine. For some of the bigger spreadsheets I use, I actually find it more efficient to bring up Parallels and run Excel for Windows, which seems ridiculous.
So you describe her as "The complete package". If she were unattractive she would be an incomplete package? I made fun of Ballmer because he ran across the stage shouting "Whoop", "I love this company" and "Developers, developers, developers, developers". That guys actions were ridiculous, not his appearance. I firmly believe that in an industry where we continue to struggle to find talent, we need to make sure we attract and retain the best people. Sadly, women are...
Maybe one of the reasons women in tech are as elusive as unicorns is because when they do an outstanding job, the quality of their work is not the thing they are complimented on, it's their appearance. Engineering has a catastrophic problem with recruiting women and it needs to be solved, not ignored.
I wonder if women (or gay men for that matter) feel the need to comment on the attractiveness or otherwise of Mark Zuckerberg, Tim Cook et al when they do product introductions?
The tech world has a long way to go with its treatment of women.......
I'm really pleased about this. I could just about get away with only taking an iPad with me when I travel, but for the fact that Numbers just doesn't meet my needs in the way Excel does (and, of course, Excel is pretty much the "standard" where I work).
Now, if they would just improve Excel for Mac, to make it use multi-core processors, that would be a huge bonus too!
