Is it true that installing the Office preview will uninstall InfoPath 2013?

Original Title: Office 2016 and InfoPath 2013

(Not really about Word but I was forced to choose something...)

Is it true what I hear, that installing the Office preview will uninstall my InfoPath 2013 and I won't be able to reinstall it? Is Microsoft aware of this issue and is there a plan to fix it?

Yes, Office Preview will uninstall InfoPath 2013 and you won't be able to reinstall it. There is more info about this here on the blog: http://blogs.office.com/2014/01/31/update-on-infopath-and-sharepoint-forms/. There is also a brief mention of this here: http://community.office365.com/en-us/office_2016_preview/w/issues/default.aspx

Microsoft is working to address this, but I don't have any more details on it at this time.
