Like the word processors review
, I can define 3 groups of spreadsheet programs:1. Big boys:
Microsoft Excel 2003 and OpenOffice.org 2.x Calc. Maybe there is another great spreadsheet program, I don't know...
My opinion: Excel
is excellent.2. The Rest:
Some are for DOS, some are not for Windows, some require Java, some are beta, some are abandoned etc.
Gnumeric is close to those above but still not so powerful. Also Spread32 is very small and quite good equipped.
And there are many not-so-pro level programs (alphabetical): Abykus, GS-Calc, Bean Sheet, CleanSheets, ConCalc, EasyCalc, Enable
, Jeks, Lotus 1-2-3, Lucid 3D
, MultiPlan, PlanMaker
, QuattroPro, SuperCalc, Sharp Tools Spreadsheet, Sphygnic, SpreadCalc, SpreadPro, VisiCalc, VistaCalc...
My opinion: Spread32
- fast and full off functions..3. Online:
These are - attention! New - online spreadsheets and offices and desktops (Web2).
Google Docs & Spreadsheet, ThinkFree Office, Zoho Sheet, DesktopTwo, AjaxXls, GHoSt, EditGrid, NumSum...
My opinion: ThinkFree
- almost desktop power.
Ok I think the poll must contain only software from the 1st group.
