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.

Now Microsoft "solves" this problem, and Opera STILL wants more, and is going after Microsoft's competitors next. Seriously, Opera... your "include us too" spree is really looking like a joke, and has lost all credibility for sure now.

The only joke here is people like you not bothering to read what he actually said. He never went after anyone. In fact, he specifically pointed out that Apple and Ubuntu are not monopolies, and said MAY BE A GOOD IDEA:

Quote: "Apple and Ubuntu are not monopolies as per the legal definition of a monopoly. Still, it may be a good idea to offer it"

Ironically, ever since earlier today, a triangle with an exclamation point has been in my system tray, informing me that there are problems trying to update all the repositories' local database. The problem?

Failed to fetch http://deb.opera.com/opera/dists/stable/non-free/binary-i386/Packag... 404 Not Found
Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Works fine here:

Package: opera
Version: 9.64.2480.gcc4.qt3

This news and this error couldn't have come with worse timing. I'm about to remove Opera's repository to get rid of this damn "error" system tray icon... it's annoying. Meanwhile... Opera, you got what you wanted. Just GIVE UP ALREADY.

You need to stop it with the silly knee-jerk reactions.
