Office shootout: OpenOffice.org Calc vs. Microsoft Excel

Charting in OOo/Calc is just ridicules to put it in gentle words. I hoped the situation will improve over the years (at least four years of waiting for me) but to no avail. Even Gnumeric (a light weight commpared to OOo and its resources) outperforms OOo/Calc. I can cope with work arounds but many of my fellows not, thus they stick to EXCEL. Start a comparison which compares a real scenario and not that based on the assumption of a single user. You say home or business use. Well I don't know what to say about that.
(No offence intended here!).
