    When it comes to sucking ... nothing can replace Excel.

    Ouch! That's gonna leave a mark!

      Believe me, as someone who has to deal with the fallout from Excel every now and then, I am not impartial.

      Besides, the gnumeric developers have been working with the R developers (a really great tool for statistical work) to improve the accuracy of gnumeric. They are serious about something that can be useful to someone other than accountants and middle managers.

        And no wonder; if you are teaching it, and it gives out false info, then what is it good for?
        Thanks for the background--I have heard of plf15 talking of r before; nice to know that the Gnumeric people are working with them.
