Hello Adrian,

Thank you for engaging me on this issue.  While I am a deep believer
in “freedom” as you mention it – I also need to be able to have people
(who understand none of the technospeak and specialized words), able
to get to an installed usable version.  Even your answer leaves my
head swimming.

Installing gnumeric is usually trivial and you don't even need to go to
the gnumeric web site.

If you are using Debian you just select that program like any other
package for installation (using the synaptic pacakge manager accessible
via System->Administration), similarly in Ubuntu or any other modern
operating system.

(Considering your question I suppose you are using MS Windows. In that
case you chose an operating system that is designed to avoid having
competitors software installed easily. I suggest you get another
operating system.)

I'm not aware of any difficulty experienced by Windows users installing free and open software like Firefox (competes with MS Internet Explorer) or (competes with Microsoft Office). Their web pages seem to be lucid enough:
