what are people using for a spreadsheet?



Dismal is what I've used in the past.

For the specific task you have, you might be able to use org-mode
productively -- it might actually be a better tool than a
spreadsheet,
since what you want in this case is to keep notes, with
appropriate embedded tables.

Spend some time reading the online org manual, see how others are
using org by reading the emacs-wiki and lurking on the org list
--- it'll be worth the time.
