thanks for the completing info - now I/we know better.
Some years ago I was an Ubuntu-user but when I happened to buy a laptop which components didn't cooperate with Linux so I had to skip it.
Now I have planned to install Ubuntu again so your info can be useful.

Thank you also for your good advice concerning subforms (thread "Subforms in LibreO"). I looked at it preliminary and seems like I got the idea; I shall work on it at the weekend.

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.
