Mesa goes Universal

The MacDev workshop has announced the latest release of Mesa spreadsheet software as a Universal Binary, offering native compatibility to PowerPC as well as Intel-based Macs. Mesa is built exclusively for Mac OS X, providing a traditional spreadsheet that combines an easy-to-use icon-based interface with standard features and compatibility with Microsoft Excel. The software features multiple worksheets with advanced functions and charting capability, allowing users to set up headers as well as footers with numerous options via a "ReportWriter" function. A Formula Builder helps set up formulas, and allows users to read about functions as they are used. Mesa is available for $35, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.

    I'm happy to hear of a real alternative to Excel on the Mac.

    Actually, Excel is probably MS's best product, but that's not really saying all that much. Competition is good.
