Re: Office shootout: OpenOffice.org Calc vs. Microsoft Excel

Yes, calc is weak in graphing. But my version of Excel only does 0 - 255 axis on a circular chart. How stupid is that? A 360 degree chart that only resolves to 255! OO and Gnumeric does better here. The slowness of Calc is the killer, try using 30,000 rows and a couple of columns with five digit numbers and see OO choke. I can easily graph this with Excel.
