Oleo is a full featured, but somewhat lacking in documention and ease of
use, gnu spreadsheet.  If you use X xspread is also good.  In addition
Staroffice and Applix both include spreadsheet programs

Just do a search for unix software and you will find these and several

1. Reward for NExS Spreadsheet Plug-Ins

XESS Corp. Encourages Third-Party Plug-Ins for the NExS Spreadsheet
X Engineering Software Systems (XESS Corp.) announces the initiation of a
program to encourage the creation of plug-ins for the NExS spreadsheet by
third-parties. Henceforth, the author of any code that XESS Corp. chooses to
publish on its Web site will receive a free license for the NExS Personal
Edition spreadsheet.

NExS Product Manager Dave Vanden Bout stated:

     Many of our customers are interfacing NExS to other tools in
     unique ways. We want to encourage them to share their creations
     with others. We'll admit that a free copy of NExS is hardly
     adequate compensation for the work that goes into many of these
     plug-ins, but a small reward is better than no reward. And we are
     not limiting this program to just plug-ins: anyone who has a NExS
     spreadsheet for an interesting application or a document
     explaining how to use NExS in a particular area is eligible for
     this program. Just e-mail it to us. If we use it, we'll send you a
     free NExS license.

Those interested in the various plug-ins currently available for the NExS
spreadsheet can check them out at www.xess.com. XESS Corp. provides these
plug-ins on an unsupported basis in the hopes that they might be useful to
users of the NExS spreadsheet. In addition, a free, 30-day version of the
NExS spreadsheet and the new conNExions-BETA API can also be downloaded for
the HP/UX, AIX, Digital UNIX, SunOS, Solaris and Linux platforms.
