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.

Before Opera starts demanding a ballot in Linux, they may have to look into their browser and make it usable, regarding plugins and whatnot. I like Opera, but it's useless with flash and videoplugins, and incredibly slow and buggy with javascript.

Where did Opera demand a ballot in Linux? Did you even read beyond the insane and sensationalist BS by the article author?

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

Opera's JavaScript is actually very fast and stable. It doesn't have JIT and all those tricks yet, but that is not really relevant for today's sites.
