Microsoft Excel has its fans. However most people think that Excel is the only commercially available spreadsheet. For them there is an alternative.


Pluses - Sphygmatic is spreadsheet for serious number crunchers. Sphygmic sports 125 functions. You have up to 256 columns and over 16,000 rows, multiple sheets, CSV files and read and write Excel 4.0 files. A charting module is built in.



Minuses - It's getting a little old. There is no support available. What you get is what there is.
