I do not know if the Windows versions of LO still hang up till you
install a Java Runtime, but it use to. I just automatically install the
runtime now for a new system. It may have changed, but I do not know if
The developers are working hard to remove the need for Java with LO.
They are converting Java coding to Python. BUT, many of the popular
extension may be written in Java, so there will still be a need to use
it, even though the "core" package does not need it to run.

This is a rumor. Both suites run fine without any Java. You can check
it out when you disable the use of Java components in the Office
options. It is rather unlikely that the avarage user will miss anything.
_On a Linux system_ you can install as many OOo/LibO suites as you
like. I never uninstall anything before upgrading. If any of the
office suites shows unspecific weird behaviour it is always some
broken setting or incompatible extension in the profile folder which
is not affected by any installation routine.
It is possible to run an office suite from extracted package files
only without any installation routines. This way minor releases (3.4.x
and 3.4.y) can be used on the same machine.
