I still use Windows for spreadsheets and accounting software. There is no good Mac alternative for those two applications.

"Microsoft Excel for Mac OS X" is not a good alternative to "Microsoft Excel for Windows"?

I'm a relatively recent "switcher" myself, and tried "Microsoft Excel for Mac OS X".  I didn't like it - it seemed cluttered and didn't look or feel like a Mac app.  I also got the impression that updates for the Mac version of the MS Office products lag behind the Windows version.

I have found it better to run Windows-based Excel in a virtual machine (Parallels).  It's kind of the best of both worlds.
