Hi :)
It should be fine in Ubuntu 12.04.  I'm not sure why people are talking about Windows
That felt strange to me too, since I mentioned my operating system in
my original post.
I thought this forum was for *all* users.
I was answering the question because I thought there could be some peoples running another OS wondering whether running different versions of LibreOffice at the same time is possible.


Even stranger is that I received that message at
all, since I have a filter that is supposed move all messages that
contains the word ”Windows” (or any of some other words) from my inbox
so I never have to read them, but obviously this does not work, which
doesn't have anything to do with LibreOffice anyway, so this is way
off topic…

but this guide covers both anyway
Thanks. I'll take a look at it later.

(to answer my own questions it's probably because there's been a lot of traffic on-list so people 
have to skim through quickly and most questions tend to be about Windows)
Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

For some reasons I want to try the upcoming version 4.0. On the web
page, they say ”You are not recommended to use LibreOffice pre-release
builds for "mission-critical" purposes”. So obviously I need a stable
version as well, like the that I have installed right now.

So I presume that I can use both versions at the same time, that they
are ”isolated” from each other as long as 4.0 is a pre-release, right?

But before I'm going to install it, I want to know rather than just assume…

So, is it possible? If so, can I just install the debs (operating
system=Ubuntu 12.04) and it will just work? Will I be able to run both
versions at the same time safely?
