Excel is definitely a very powerful tool and i attribute the reason for its success to the fact that it was able to change the way people used to compute earlier. The fact that Excel was able to change the behavior of people is the real reason for its success. Therefore, it also holds a very key lesson, if we can create softwares which in turn lead to change the way people live/ work/ behave, those softwares shall certainly be big hits 🙂
