Same here. Very few even use spreadsheets at all, and those that do
usually use them as simply a convenient way to organize textual
information into rows and columns.
No doubt there a few power users, and few data-entry people who feed
the spreadsheets created by power users, but, as you say, these are
few and far between.
Everyone with in office in my company gets the full-blown
What's done with this huge, expensive package? Email, meeting
scheduling, light word processing. That's about it.

OK, tried to do this in Calc today.
Tried dragging down columns to get a value un each subsequent row to
increase in 10's (10,20,30 etc). It steadfastly refused to even when I
manually entered the first and second values and instead was intent in
going up in 1's.
I'm not prejudiced. I hate everybody equally.
