Re: [libreoffice-design] Agenda for the design/UX meeting 2019-Feb-06 (Wed)

Thank you and Gerhard for clearing this up to me.

Calc has several limitations and quirks that make it harder for companies
to even consider replacing Microsoft Office with LibreOffice, but IMO this
is the most important one.
I can't speak for Italy, but in Portugal barely any big organization uses
Access. They all do their work in Excel but they require macros.
And no organization would even consider replacing Microsoft Office if
there's no macro compatibility. Hundreds of spreadsheets with macros that
would have to be converted?

This is not the correct mailing list for this, I know but was it ever
considered to move from StarBasic to VBA?
