Part of the missing chart lines problem is that some are set to 'invisible' (I expect to improve readability) and some import as the color white, which is also the background color. The syntax problem is often just a case of switching out commas, semicolons, or colons when importing excel to OOo.

Many of the main linux distributions, NeoOffice, and other variants will be shipping LibreOffice in future.
Release candidate version 2 of the first LibreOffice, version 3.3 is now available from http://www.documentfoundation.org/
Sun was very slow to accept outside contributions to the code, including corrections, improvements to .xls and .doc import, and cleaning out of legacy code, so it didn't progress very rapidly under Sun. Oracle is expected to be no better, perhaps worse. Oracle owns the openoffice.org trademark and won't let the fork use that name, hence LibreOffice under a new aegis and with improved freedom from special corporate interests.
I've kludged a 'fix' for the time vs. average gradient numbers and graph in the summary sheet, but don't have time for the N-development vs time right now. Don't ask for the sheet yet, it's too messy. I may explain the fix time vs. gradient fix when I have more time for a longer post.
