    openoffice is pretty outstanding. not sure if it meets your fast startup requirement.

    negative. Google gears is hardly light... And the google online apps are definitely not fast. They're as slow as Microsoft Office.

    glad i could help. :)

    as for apple's spreadsheet app, i assume you're talking about Apple Works. That hasn't been updated in quite some time, though I see rumors every so often that a spreadsheet app ("Numbers") will soon be added to iWork.
