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.

"open standards are more important than open source"

I can agree with that.

Then you also agree that it's a valid choice.

But I think it's a bogus choice. If you use Konqueror or Firefox, you don't have to make that choice at all because they support both open standards and open source. That's why I prefer to use Konqueror and Firefox instead of Opera.
