It’s a very viable spreadsheet application  and is a good option if  not used for work in Finance or other Excel intense work applications.

Calc is another spreadsheet application that  handles everything  from equations to graphs. It’s capable of handling the Excel document format as well.

Mesa and Tables are both simple spreadsheet apps. These are two very useful spreadsheet apps.
