    @nblackburn there's specific cells that are used as "buffers" for the data. I really wish I could make this shit up.

    Confession of a developer: I like Excel. It's, in my opinion, the most versatile piece of software ever made.

    @Lukas that is also one of its weaknesses. It's got so many functions that you will never use.

    The thing I really dislike in excel is that both data and computation are on the same place. You never know what is what until you go around every cell to check the content.

    I would say it's potential is widely underused because of a lack of knowledge (how many people, even developers, know how to properly use pivot tables,...). I use it as a texteditor, database, analysing tool, to program simple functions...even to make a small business ERP system with stock management, CRM, dashboards, barcodescanners connected to it, automatic mailing, business intelligence,...and still learning :) Only the performance is pretty crap for larger datasets...@Charmgoggles
