Numbers Spreadsheet APP for Mac

Why do so many startups use Apple iMacs or MacBook Pros?On Excel: Excel is the best tool ever produced by Microsoft (and as pointed out by Nick in the comments below, Excel started initially on Mac). I have a lot of respect for this tool: it can do a lot beyond just spreadsheets, such as database like operations (pivot tables, big data crunching…). However, my point was that the initial needs of my startup were better met by Numbers (due to its superior presentation ability); and in the end, we went for Google spreadsheet, because of its collaborative capabilities coupled with its ability to import data from other spreadsheets (a la OLE/DDE if you remember these things). Of course, Google spreadsheets do not run exclusively on Macs.
