Did Excel always have the & operator?

I can't believe I missed it... nor how much time I've wasted over the decades typing CONCATENATE() and fixing misplaced parentheses. Edit: http://www.techonthenet.com/excel/formulas/concat2.php suggests it showed up only in 2000. Wonder what else I'm still doing the hard way, having learned it around version 3.
