FWIW, I'm currently running (under WV) 3.3 (regular install), 3.4 beta 
(dev install), and AOO 3.4 (parallel install, per Andrea's link). I 
don't turn on any of the Quickstarters (that would be pushing it), and 
only run one version at a time, but all work well. Depending on where 
you specify the data should go, the parallel version may cause security 
hassles with Windows permissions, but there are several ways around that.
