Me: I had a couple of crashes and it didn't seem to recover so I decided to uninstall/reinstall it.
I was surprised to see that it took out everything to do with Second Life's official viewer, like all my chatlogs and settings.
I haz a sad.

Dessie Linden: We need to be sure that installation issues are carefully and completely documented for residents. The default behavior of the Official Viewer 2 installer will be to install OVER Viewer 1.23. Because doing so will hose 1.23, we need to clearly document that residents should select a different install location than the one in which their 1.23 viewer is installed.

Rand Linden: I believe this should be covered in Viewer Help or the KB, so reassigning to Jeremy.
Me: I believe it was beta at the time. I don't think a beta viewer should EVER default to wiping out the official viewer.
