I didn't know this in its DOS days: I found out about it a couple of years ago
in its Linux incarnation. Yes, the spreadsheet is excellent. The database
module it very good too. I find these two so useful that it was worth paying
the registration fee (otherwise you can't print or save, as I recall) and buying
the manuals.

I don't have much use for the word-processor module, though, since it is
incompatible with just about anything else except through exported/imported
text files, and I use other things for primary text processing.

And I have almost no use at all for the "comms" module (integration of the
other three with dial-up communications and data transfer).

If you're already familiar with it (which is an important factor, since it isn't
trivial to learn how to use it effectively from scratch as I had to do) then I'd
definitely encourage you to look at its Linux version.
