GUI spreadsheets give you font control, you know. You're by no means
forced to use proportionally spaced fonts. On the other hand, under a
character matrix UI you do not have the option of proportional fonts.

Face it: What you're really fond of is what you're familiar with using.
I strongly doubt there are any DOS applications with true superiority
to applications available as native Linux apps.
