When numbers get serious, most Mac users turn to Microsoft Excel. But is the latest version of Microsoft's spreadsheet worth the the upgrade? Matt Neuburg looks at Excel 98 to answer that question. Also this week, Adam explores issues surrounding the Quicken debacle and uncovers a Macintosh personal finance package that's still alive. Finally, announcements of new software releases include Eudora Pro 4.0.1, HyperCard 2.4, Dreamweaver 1.2, AutoShare 2.2, and Assimilator 2.0.
