Opera Software The Opera team has released version 10.10 of their feature-rich browser. This is the first Opera release to come with Opera Unite, which combines the web browser with a web server, so that users can share data directly between one another, without the need for a third party.

You are extremely narrow-minded. File sharing is just a tiny and limited use case for Unite. It's just something people easily understand.


Ok, fine. Lets look at the other use cases and see how unique they are:

Chat
Streaming Media
File Sync
Online Photo Albums

Yeah, they are really pushing the bar.

The proxy is just a fallback if a direct connection isn't possible.


You also are agreeing to allow them to reuse, edit, or block access to your content arbitrarily, without warning, and without telling anyone.

Opera never called anyone oppressed. In fact, Opera itself runs several types of servers. The point of the video was that you now have a choice.


And my point is that servers have no impact on anything that be construed as "freedom", and that you have ALWAYS had a choice to run your own server, since servers are just software.

Apache: Promoting freedom from big servers since 1994

No, it's just you who doesn't get it. So I wonder who the moron is...


Again, they are using politically charged words to promote something that is not new, innovative, or interesting to anyone but a small amount of people who want to do this stuff, dont want to use the dozens of free services out there that are better, and are incapable of setting up services for themselves which are better.
