I work for a small non profit conservation organization and we have a reasonably high turnover of people... so it stands to reason that some people don't want to change from a preferred program. this in mind...

Can i install ArcGIS 10.1 and QGIS on the same PC without problems?

Of course. Those are entirely different programs and if you install QGIS with the OSGEO4W installer it runs entirely within a folder. But of course with every software it depends on your system specifications and the context you are using them. – Curlew Jul 3 '13 at 14:40

As per this question, you can.
