The thread "R licensing query" currently running has raised the classic critcisms of using Excel for statistics.

I was wondering: Has anyone applied the same or similar set of tests to OpenOffice "calc"?

Or would the Executive Summary be: "Calc is just like Excel"?

(Not that I'm a spreadsheet user, if I can avoid it; but I sometimes get asked about such things).

Sorry to be completely non-R here, but I can't think of a better place to ask!
