Ais may port Xess to sparc linux


I recently emailed Ais regarding their spreadsheet Xess and whether they
would consider porting it to sparc linux.

This is what they said:

Now I know most people prefer open-source software and this is not
open-source, however it is the best spreadsheet available with more
features than any other program, it's bloat free too. It's also
compatible with excell and lotus.

Anyone interested in helping me to get this ported to sparc linux by
purchasing a license please contact me at q8902929@topaz.cqu.edu.cqu or
contact Shannon at shannon@ais.com

If you have an intel box you can try the demo version available at their
web site.

Best Regards,

Peter Firmstone.
