Nothing silly about it. That's what Excel's good at - having a quick
look at your data. It's just not journal quality ;), multiple plots
using the same template is a pain, and the size of your dataset is
severly limited.

Besides R, Gnuplot, Matlab|Octave, I would recommend checking out GRI 
for a great scriptable scientific graphing package (free):

see also GRE (Perl rewrite of GRI):

Personally way prefer GRE to GNUplot.
