I just installed AOO4 today and find that this also (as well as LO4) no
longer supports the older file formats and crashes a bit so I will
probably stick with LO 3.6 for now.

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
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 my never-ending, obsessive (and
admittedly futile) search for computing perfection, I want to try
both programs to see which better meets my techno-needs.
