BC Spreadsheet

I have been looking for a lightweight spreadsheet software, as Excel isn’t in universal yet and is nearly as slow as NeoOffice to start up. Often, I only need some basic spreadsheet functionality like summing a bunch of numbers, etc. and then it isn’t worth the effort opening one of the mastodont programs.

So I have been looking for something similar to TextEdit in the spreadsheet world. Strangely enough, the only program I have found so far is BC Spreadsheet. It is freeware, which is great of course, and does the basics. The only thing I don’t like about it is that it saves to its own format, and it can only eport csv-files. It would have been nice if it could have been saving to an open office (or even xls) file.

  1. I too was going to suggest Google Docs… Since you are ultimately publishing your data it may not matter that ‘Google is watching’
