I have OO-1.1.4 installed on my Linux (FC3) machine.
I want to try and work with the test version of OO-2.0.
Can I have dual installation of OO-1.x and OO-2.x without one interfering eith the other?
If I decide to uninstall OO-2, will that bring setting back to the current state (OO-1.x only) ?

From what I can see, 2.0 installs all its stuff in separate directory and hence shall not affect older OO installed.

I have both 1.1.2 and 2.0 installed with no problem. Uninstalling 2.0 does not affect my installation.

That's my personal experience.

what OS do you use? Linux? WinXP?

Since 2.0 is installed with RPMs, it cannot be locally installed by a user, that means a system level installation of OpenOffice.
So how is the ~/.openoffice differentiate between 1.1.2 and 2.0 ?
