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 126.96.36.199, 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 188.8.131.52.
Nevertheless, LO 4 installed and, once again, my installation of LO 184.108.40.206 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.
