The important thing is whether Gnumeric gives the right answers. Frankly, I'm no judge when it comes to financial derivatives, Monte Carlo simulations, linear and nonlinear equations, or, for that matter, balancing my checkbook. Gnumeric's developers have math whizzes in to check it out and the spreadsheet got the same answers as the high-priced spread, only faster.

I will give it to Excel for its fancier and more colorful graphs and charts, no mean consideration if you hope to get approval for that new project by wowing the board with drop-dead graphics instead of simply dead numbers.
