Mesa is actually an excellent Mac OS X spreadsheet. True, it's not perfect, but I find it much easier to use than Excel for basic stuff. I have not yet encountered an Excel spreadsheet Mesa couldn't open, and Mesa writes fully Excel-compatible sheets in return. The only two big gripes I have are that (1) Mesa doesn't support comments attached to fields or sheets and (2) Mesa doesn't export sheets to HTML. Neither of these are show-stoppers for me, however.

Like any software, Mesa takes a little getting used to, and you have to want to make the break from Excel in order to learn the Mesa way. However, the software comes with excellent Help documentation, and a lot of its behavior makes perfect sense once you know how it works. That said, I do encourage the developer of Mesa to continue enhancing the product, since it has been over a year since the last significant update.

I have tried Mesa several times, but I do not think it reach up to the standard of Excel. I think Mesa could be great if the developers continued to develope it. But it seems to me that they ceased the developing several years ago and the only thing they do now, is to make it workable on the Intel platform as well.

I really miss the Lotus 1-2-3 for Mac, that was unbeatable!

It's great that there is an alternative to Excel, however, from the website... "( We don't guarantee
complete Excel compatibility)".

In order to compete with Excel on any platform, a product absolutely MUST have complete compatibility with it.
