i was legit excited when win95 came out. it was like, a really big deal and not just for nerds afaict. i donít think anyone gives as much of a poo poo about computer things anymore, not even new apple bullshit

is there a thing where i can rent a windows vm ~in the cloud~ with excel preinstalled

I know nothing about microsoft things and so on but i need to edit a really complicated excel sheet which their web cloud excel completely chokes on (as does all other software i've tried)

you can do this with amazon workspaces, i use it for chunky excel sheets from time to time
