Hi Virgil

If I may offer my input here as I have and still use both, with my clients mainly. Apache OOo has deprecated slightly, i.e. it has not caught up to LibreOffice. In the overall basic user features there is not much difference, but OOo stagnated, being firstly involved in the merger from Sun Microsystems to Oracle, who did not do much with OOo. This created the fork to LO and the development of LO continued.

It was not until OOo was offered to Apache by Oracle, that it started to gain momentum again, but alas in my experience it is now playing catch-up with LO. One of the issues I have with my users using Apache OOo, is that they are able to open multiple single sessions of either Writer or Calc, and eventually their systems run out of resources and memory, generating a number of unnecessary service calls of complaints "my system is slow" etc. I have not experienced this with any clients using LO, and I am migrating my Apache OOo clients over to LO, due to this issue.

So my opinion, off the bat, LO is the better choice.

Are there any known conflicts with having LO 4.0.4 and AOO 4.0 installed on the same computer? In

both programs to see which better meets my techno-needs.
