Opera Software Opera Software is making plans to steal market share from Microsoft. Though a launch date for Opera 10 hasn't yet been set, Opera is hoping the updated application will lure users away from Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 by building on Opera 9's use of small Web applications called widgets.

remember ms crushed netscape because it could 'replace' windows.
think of a BASIC linux distro embedded on a device that runs opera 10

office apps - MS Office live, google speadsheet as widgets
email client - gmail widget
instant message - msn, aim yada yada widgets

most of what, on a modern day PC, is 'NEEDED' can be accomplished online now. The only limiter is bandwidth.

imagine the requriement for this pc? do you even need a hard disk for example?
