After uploading an existing spreadsheet, I must admit that I am impressed with how well it works.
Although I couldn't immediately imagine what I'd use it for myself, a work colleague pointed out that he might use it so he can always have access to his spreadsheet which lists his music collection. It turns out he often has trouble remembering which CD's he already has when looking at Trademe .
It doesn't appear to support charting (yet?), but certainly handles standard spreadsheets with ease.
I guess (or is that hope?) that it's a sign of things to come from Google, which can only be a good thing for those of us that are astounded at the ever increasing cost of standard office software packages.

I love the idea of Google spreadsheets, notes, mail etc etc. Those who want an alternative to MS Office can also look to http://www.openoffice.org which, at the time of its 2.0 release, has matured significantly over the earlier versions. Even newbies should feel at home with this.
