Excel Annoyances


English, as we all know, is written and read from left to right.

The needles on the gauges in vehicles generally go from left to right.

'Loading' bars go from left to right.

so why does Excel add new tabs to your workbook in the opposite order?

It does the same on a Mac too. Is it just the usual shoddy Microsoft Usability, or is there an actual reason for it?
