Opera Software Opera Software's CEO Jon S. von Tetzchner explains why they will not release the Opera browser as open source, arguing that open standards are more important than open source. Von Tetzchner also talks about the company's antitrust complaint to the European Commission in which it accuses Microsoft of abusing its dominant position by tying Internet Explorer to Windows.

Itnernet explorer did not exist 20 yeasrs ago. It was 1999 when IE managed to surpass Netscape for the first time, and the monopoly was not established untill 2002-2003 and since then it has been on constant decline and in most of europe its no longer in monopoly position, more like a duopoly of sorts. So saying 20 years is blatantly wrong.
