Hi, I'd just like to throw my support behind Alan. While I support
gnumeric as a fine and upstanding example of an Open Source application
for GNOME environments, AbiSuite is all about XP. If people really believe
that gnumeric is the be all and end all of OSS spreadsheets, then, well,
let them eat cake.
Personally, much as I admire GNOME on Linux, you won't catch me using it
on MacOSX. In fact I recommend Mesa. It's not Open Source, but it's not
There is certainly a gap here for an OSS spreadsheet, and AbiCalc or
AbiSheet or AbiCellMaster or whatever is not a bad idea. In fact, if Alan
is willing to pay for its development then yay! yay! it's a good idea.
Don't, and let me repeat that: Don't, discourage him.
Alan: Keep it up. Money may be the root of all evil, but the end justifies
the means. Bravo!
