I uninstall the old, and install the new. It seems to keep some user settings around to make the move a little less painful.
I am using open office 1.1 and I just downloaded the newest version of open office. What I am wondering is that when I go to install the new version should I uninstall the older version first, or when I installed the newer version it will just install itself over the older version. Hopefully you understand what I am trying to ask. If anybody has any hints that I should use while upgrading to the newest version I would certainly like to hear them. Thank you in advance for any information you may be able to offer me.
