      I greatly prefer Quantrix over Excel.
      It's a symbolic spreadsheet... Makes so much more sense than excel, it's hard to get used to it ;-)

      I do all me estimatin' wid it.

      Of course, that doesn't seem to help with actually making money


      Also, if you don't already have Excel, be sure to get some version of OpenOffice for your preferred OS instead.
      NeoOffice for Mac OSX. This is the open-source 'office suite' - reads and writes all of the 'standard' (ie Msoft) files as well.
