Gnumeric Spreadsheet Portable
Gnumeric is a free, fully functioned spreadsheet that loads and perform quickly.

Spreadsheets are rarely sexy, but they usually feature in most must-have software lists, along with word processors. Like plumbing, a good spreadsheet should get on with what it does best without fuss so you can use it to accomplish a task and then forget it. Whether dealing with routine accounts, manipulating data models or producing graphs, a spreadsheet needs to be quick and competent. Gnumeric achieves this with some aplomb.

It’s able to open and save in Microsoft Office XLS and XLSX format so sharing data with others shouldn’t be an issue. The interface is clean and clear, and will be familiar to anyone who has used a version of Excel prior to the Office 2007 release.

As part of the Gnome Office project, the development of open-source office programs for the Gnome Linux desktop, Gnumeric adheres to Gnome’s principles of simplicity and ease of use. Its closest free competitor is OpenOffice Calc, part of the larger OpenOffice suite, which is quite a weighty download. Gnumeric tips the scales at just under 18MB. This light footprint helps provide fast loading times and reduces processing overheads.

If you’re used to recent Microsoft Office installations, adjusting from the Ribbon interface may take a little time. There’s less hand holding and fewer pretty formatting options. However, most popular functions, calculations and charting options are available. If you have a reasonable working knowledge of spreadsheets and want something that’s easy to get going with, Gnumeric’s a pleasure to use.
 

Verdict:

If you’re looking for a quick and easy stand alone spreadsheet that covers most popular functions, Gnumeric comfortably fits the bill.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
