What Spreadsheet do you use on your Linux System?

Following my comparisons between OpenOffice.org Calc, KSpread, and Gnumeric I got to wondering what spreadsheets are the most popular for all you other GNU/Linux users. I started a poll that you can find here. Promote your favorite and vote.

Options include OpenOffice.org Calc, KSpread, Gnumeric, Excel through Wine/Crossover/Virtual Machine, PlanMaker, FlyCalc, Google Spreadsheet, Oleo, and SC. Of course you can also vote for Other and write-in your choice.

Gnumeric vs. OpenOffice.org Calc

In my previous post OpenOffice.org Calc prevailed against KSpread, but now it's faces a new challenger. Will Gnumeric have what it takes to win the crown? Gnumeric is a Free, open source spreadsheet from the GNOME project.

KSpread vs. OpenOffice.org Calc

I've been using OpenOffice.org Calc for a while now, but I recently decided to give KSpread a try after getting frustrated with Calc's slow load times. It rarely bothered me on my desktop system because I have 4GB of RAM and usually leave the program open, but my work laptop runs Windows XP, forcing me to run Kubuntu in a virtual machine. Unfortunately disk access is significantly slower and memory capacity is much smaller so the Calc startup time is painfully slow. KSpread is very fast, but are its other features good enough for me to stick with it?
