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.

Too bad it's using qt

I just thought I might give Opera a try, after all the years I haven't been using it.

I wanted to download a version for GNU/Linux and what do I see? It's using qt...

I'm not going to install KDE base and all the Qt libraries, just to run this app on Ubuntu.

I mean, the two major distros geared for the Desktop, Ubuntu and Fedora, have GNOME as the default environment.

Why Qt? I think most of the KDE aficionados are pretty happy with Konqueror anyway.
