No, I use Win 2k and Office XP at work. At home I use Mac, but very little with Excel (as for user interface, XL is better, but MS has left it badly crippled in VBA). I have downloaded NeoOffice/j to see what it offers. But at home that doesn't add much value for my work.

Because I work write/publish Biblical studies, teaching guides, Bible study guides, and theological papers for congregational and Bible College teaching, I have little need for spreadsheets. Thus, most of my home computer use is with MS Word, Nisus Writer Express, and Mellel; and I am using RagTime as a page lay out for a book I am putting together.
