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.

I'm slightly disturbed by the amount of Opera hating thats going on here.
I can understand if people don't like Opera or simply prefer a different browser (I use a mixture of Opera and Firefox) but the amount of fury and venom thats being directed towards Opera baffles me.
Its another choice of browser as far as I'm concerned, yet I get the impression that some people here want to see it obliterated from the market.

Seriously, why all the hate?

It's because Opera is bloated or adware or spyware or the CTO doesn't know what he's talking about or because they're trying to get a free ride or... who the hell knows what is going on here but it certainly seems there's just an outright BAD vibe towards Opera on this site even moreso recently than in times past.
