Opera Software A few days ago Opera launched a placeholder website which said they were going to "reinvent" the web, on June 16. Well, it's June 16, and Opera has announced Opera Unite, a technology which allows individual Opera users to connect to one another, turning every machine running Opera Unite into a web server.

If I understand this correctly, a user would share all the resources (pictures, music, etc.) right from his/her computer without needing to upload them to any server. OK but this has a huge drawback - what happens when his/her PC is turned off or is offline for some reason?

It if all was that simple, for example, hosting companies would get much less clients than currently because it is very simple to run a web server on your home/office PC..
