Can LibreOffice and Open Office Co-Exist on the same Windows 7 PC

The following can peacefully co-exist, at least for Windows and Mac OS X:
* OOo4Kids;
* OOoLight;
* LibreOffice;

I disagree; at least on the and LibreOffice parts.

While both can co-exist on the same system, you'll find that if you
have, on Windows (doesn't matter which version), OOo installed and then
install LO you get the following:

- LO takes over all OOo application defaults & icons.
- LO uses the same executable names as OOo (soffice.exe, swriter.exe,
etc). This makes it impossible to select an .odt and re-associate it
with OOo.

Windows isn't my native language (I use linux & test w/Windows) so if
your experience is different I'd appreciate knowing how you manage this
