I tried gnumeric, but I didn't see *any* support for graphs/charts or
statistical analysis. THose are the only two things I ever use Excel for.
(And I don't have excel, because my copy of win98 doesn't have the office
package. Just M$"works", which is crap, too. It doesn't do statistics.
It might do graphs, but I doubt it.)
Anyway, though, I needed to make a graph for a lab report, and I couldn't
decipher gnuplot, so I used appleworks on the iBook. After much arguing,
I got it to graph what I wanted. THen I had to have Ben convert it to eps
on his G3... it was a pain.
Does anyone know how to use gnuplot? Does gnumeric actually do graphing
and statistics? Help, anyone...
I'm having some difficulty with the idea that an AI needs nookie.
