Although they are quite specific about saying LibreOffice wipes out
OpenOffice when it installs?

Despite its name, the "parallel install" does not install the software but 
just copies the executables into the chosen directory. So nothing will be 
wiped out or changed. 

The only thing you have to take care is that your user profile does not get 
altered. For this you should tweak the UserInstallation line of the 
bootstraprc file as described *before* starting the application.


     Just remember that "they" (Ubuntu) is talking about their version
of LO. When you download LO from the DF website, you do not run into
this problem. Presently, on Ubuntu I have the following files in
the /opt/ folder: libreoffice3.4, libreoffice3.5, lodev3.5, ooo-dev,
ooo-dev3,, and openoffice.org3. I can run soffice from
any one of these folders (those which have a program folder).
     The Applications > Office contains Apache OpenOffice,
Openoffice.org3.4, and LO 3.4.6. (After installing LO 3.5.2, I installed
the file in the desktop integration folder. I wanted 3.4.6 to be listed
in the Office menu rather than 3.5.2 which over wrote the settings of
3.4.6 in the menu.)
