My first time back to K12OSN in about two years, so naturally I've got
to put in my two cents.

For my needs (basic and intermediate stuff) I find no problem switching
between Excel (work) and OOCalc (home).

Additionally, if you right-click on the toolbars in OOCalc, they are
highly configurable.  Perhaps you can customize them to suit your needs.
