Opera Software Jon S. von Tetzchner has been with Opera for a long time - in fact, he co-founded the browser maker back in 1995, and led the company to great success; the desktop version may play a niche role, the various mobile versions surely do not. Today though, he has announced he will be leaving the company due to differences with the board and management.

I feel the Board and Management is more quarterly focused than me.

Not surprising: it's a corporate mindset in a business world. Usually, what JSvT refers to is assets growth: managing boards want more growth for their assets and they're are willing to take risks and make (silly) decisions for that.

However, I am curious as to the real divergences in opinion between him and the others. Too bad he didn't say.
