In an attempt to compare the latest LO and AOO offerings, today I installed both LO 4.0.4 and AOO 
4.0 on my Win7 machine.

Until now, I have been happily using LO, having previously tried an earlier release in the 
LO 4 series.

When I previously installed LO 4, I noticed that it seemed to uninstall my previous version of LO 
3.6. After encountering some problems with LO 4, I uninstalled it and reinstalled LO 3.6.

On the prior occasion, I just assumed that, when installing LO 4, I had inadvertently clicked some 
option to uninstall the old 3.6. So, today, when I installed LO 4, I was very careful to make sure 
that I did not check any box indicating my desire to uninstall LO

Nevertheless, LO 4 installed and, once again, my installation of LO disappeared.

Does anyone know if this is intentional behavior? It has happened to me now twice, and I’m 90% 
certain that it was not due to anything I did. 

If it is intentional, I find it most offensive. I can’t believe the TDF developers would be so 
presumptuous as to decide for me that I no longer want LO 3.6 on my system. This is the type of 
“let us think for you” behavior I would expect from MS, not from a FOSS project.

btw, AOO 4.0 installed quite nicely *next to* AOO 3.4.1, and I am able to run both programs.

Sorry, TDF, but on this one I have to give AOO a +1.
