Opera Software Opera Software's CEO Jon S. von Tetzchner explains why they will not release the Opera browser as open source, arguing that open standards are more important than open source. Von Tetzchner also talks about the company's antitrust complaint to the European Commission in which it accuses Microsoft of abusing its dominant position by tying Internet Explorer to Windows.

Another addition :

If Open Standard where truely followed then no one would dare choose a similarly named extension file , just for the sake that this file could go on any OS and be useable and made recognized as is. Open Standard is meaningless if a derivative can be made that shadow , ressemble or break standard compliance with the original standard :

If a better format happen to emerge why not give it it's own name and make it the new standard everyone knows about. Standards are based on known quantity exept in Software where as Microsoft set most of the standard , but almost no one know's what those are made of , hence incompatibility at the standard level ...
