Gnumeric is a lightweight spreadsheet program that is fast and feature complete. Much like its chief open source competitors OpenOffice and LibreOffice, its graphical user interface is nothing fancy. What it lacks in colorful design or exciting visual menu displays, however, it surpasses with its format flexibility and easy operation. It might seem counterproductive to use a spreadsheet application outside a business suite, but no real reason justifies not doing so.

I already know Gnumeric, but I never extensively put it to the test, the problem lies in excel macros, I come across in some of the sheets I use, how is macro handling in Gnumeric?

Has this aspect been tested?

LibreOffice also fails short on some tricky sheets...

Maybe -- I'm not convinced terrorists are using them for serious plotting.
No -- Authorities should monitor social networks to gather intelligence.
No -- Social networks are no different than phone carriers or mail services.
