Microsoft, how I love thee|

Office on the Mac is horrible. It's just a sloth compared to the Windows version, even comparing roughly similar vintage computers. We still use Office 2004 at work, despite the really annoying bugs, and we don't plan on upgrading, because Microsoft ripped out VBA compatibility from 2008. OpenOffice is actually more compatible with PC Excel at this point than Mac Excel is.
My latest favorite spreadsheet for graphing stuff though is GS Calc
(commercial, $19.95). Using it reminds me how thoroughly half-baked, unnecessarily difficult to use, and ultimately ugly the graphing features of Excel really are.
Can you tell I have some pent up hostilities for Office? :P
