Yeah, I have the same problem. I do a lot of stuff in VBA, and I still haven't found another spreadsheet program with a good scripting system.

While proprietary, WPS Office is free on Linux and has excellent Office support, and a nearly identical interface.

I tried it before, but I still use LibreOffice for my personal documents. The main reason I need MSOffice (MSWord especially) is to open documents and assignments that my teachers publish (most of them use PDF, but some still use Word)
