    Peepel also has an online spreadsheet – that is free.

      @Steve: Peepel spreadsheet has been on my list of software to be reviewed for quite some time :)

    Have you ever considered SSuite Office’s Accel spreadsheet application as a free alternative to MS Excel?

    Their software also doesn’t need to run on Java or .NET, like MS Office and so many open source software, so it makes their software very small, efficient, and easy to use. :)

    I use and love Google Docs Spreadsheet. Very similar to Excel and very easy to use. They actually just updated it and now you can edit the individual boxes in the header now. Where you used to have to double click on each individual box to edit the text. I like the auto-save feature as well so that I don’t forget to save anything.

    @Stephen, Andrew and DM: Thanks for pointing these out. I am considering writing a revised list of Excel alternatives.

    For graphs, recommend a program called Graphs Made Easy (www.graphsmadeeasy.com ). It’s a free program to make great looking graphs in minutes. I would say it’s great – I work for them !

    OpenOffice.org Calc is a bad choice if you want to do 50% of the same actions as Excel.
    Copy and “Paste as value” does not exist.
    You cannot reference cells that are themselves references in many functions.
    The graph features are questionable (e.g the trend line equation is often wrong).
    The PivotTable feature is flaky at best
     
    And the errors returned are stupid … “Err: 502″ means you typed something wrong.
     
    No wonder companies avoid this free software
