By far Gnumeric is the best spreadsheet app for Linux.
I believe most of the people that voted oocalc voted it only because they've never tried gnumeric. Give it a chance, it's fast, reliable and does things right.
And if you use LaTeX, it can export tables! How many hourse it saved me! ;-)

Of course if one uses KDE it's problably not a good choice anyway :P

Even though I use OpenOffice for almost everything and do not use a Spreadsheat a lot, I had very good experience this week with Gnumeric exporting stuff to Xhtml, so I voted for it.

Gnumeric. I got a big, nasty .xls for work the other day and found that Gnumeric actually handled it better than OpenOffice. (OpenOffice is still an awesome open source project though.)

I have moved my customers on Windoze to use oocalc, they don't all use it but I can still open their *.xls files with my OpenOffice Calc.
The only thing I miss is the VBA capability of Excel. You can do amazing things with that.
Still, it's give and take.
