    I installed both on a VM several years ago to help in a transition, and never had any problem with the SQL versions fighting. I don't think that it is a recommended practice, and I wouldn't try it on a production machine or even a desktop host until after I had run it for a while in a VM container.

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.
