Opera Software Last week, the European Commission announced that Microsoft is willing to implement a browser ballot screen in Windows so that users can select a browser to install when installing Windows or when setting up their OEM computer. While this makes Opera very happy, Opera would like to see Ubuntu and Apple offer such a ballot screen too.

...it doesn't help the average computer user who just wants a binary blob that executes

It certainly does with regard to Linux distributions and that isn't what Opera seems to be asking. They are are seemingly expecting a free launcher and installer on Ubuntu, as well as OS X, for their own product. It's a pretty cheeky thing to even hint at.
