A fine example of what caffeine has done to our great nation's youth. What could have been an obscure command-line interface enjoying a modest but dignified place in the field of traditional operating systems is instead condemned to the gridded prison of automated balance sheets under the beady eyes of our financial overlords.

Jokes aside, this is an amazing achievement, the more so for being realized by a single person working away patiently for years - truly inspiring. And it brought out a wave of nostalgia for a former life where I made a living building bespoke tools in the (pre-VBA) Excel macro language. All that and solid business sense too! I hope companies shower Antonio with money, and that Microsoft either leaves him alone or rewards him with gold and the autonomy to lead technical product development for the long term. It's rare to see such a singular combination of vision and execution, doubly so in a very mature product space belonging to a global megacorporation.
