Oleo has for a long time been GNU's spreadsheet. Now there's not only Oleo but also Gnumeric, the GNOME spreadsheet. Gnumeric is a full featured spreadsheet, aiming to compete with commercial applications, and well integrated with GNOME. Oleo is a light-weight spreadsheet that'll work in almost any environment.
Oleo features a curses based interface (character mode), but also a LessTif (Motif) based graphical user interface. A screenshot of the Motif GUI is here (11K png file).
