[K12OSN] OpenOffice Calc vs Gnumeric

Well, I've primarily focused my energies in Linux to server 
capabilities, but with the applications growing ever stronger on the 
desktop, I've been using more and more desktop Linux.  I am interested 
in feedback on the specific comparison of OpenOffice Calc vs. Gnumeric.

Being an experienced Excel user, I find Gnumeric a much easier 
transition to make, many of the same icons as Excel, things I use alot 
like the "sum" button, function button, and $ formatting in particular.

Anybody know of good writeups of the two in a face-off?  Google brought 
me little in this regard, except for a few kudo's for Gnumeric, similar 
to my early impressions of the two as they stack up.

Experiences, observations, and extreme prejudice welcome to respond.
