Tavis Ormandy’s post of porting Lotus 1-2-3 is an amazing approach to turning portability on its head ♥️

@sevan Cool definitely. But I'm not sure I'd call it "porting" - there used to be a way of running COFF x86 binaries from SysV under Linux many aeons ago - I used it to run Uniplex, WordPerfect, and Informix in "legacy" mode for $work.

@grumpygrimnir it was shorter than saying “dragging something from the past by performing deep surgery” :)

@sevan I'm a late convert to how practical spreadsheets are, and also a longtime unix console person so I drool over those screensheets. I wish there were something like that native.
