Opera CEO von Tetzchner: Microsoft's IE8 'turn-off' is not enough

,----[ Quote ]
| Over the weekend, Microsoft revealed that in its latest private beta build of 
| Windows 7, it will allow users to uninstall the Internet Explorer 8 Web 
| browser front end -- a choice it has never offered to consumers since version 
| 3.0. The fact that since 1996, the presence of IE in Windows was elevated to 
| such an extent that users could not completely uninstall it, nor could they 
| ever entirely avoid it, has been credited by many as the real reason for 
| Microsoft being perceived as having won the browser war against Netscape.      
| [...]
| Oslo, Norway-based Opera Software's stance against Microsoft on the topic of 
| Web browser competition is very well known, especially after having filed an 
| antitrust complaint against it in December 2007. Microsoft's latest move 
| could give Opera a bit of a break. But as Opera CEO Jon S. von Tetzchner told 
| Betanews this evening from overseas, he sees this move as a positive signal, 
| but not anywhere close to a reparation for the years of damage he believes 
| Internet Explorer has caused to the browser market, as well as to the Web as 
| a whole.       



Opera 9.60 Review - Awesomeness, Great Features and a Few Annoying Crashes

,----[ Quote ]
| I must say that I think Opera is doing a great job supporting its browser on
| Linux. Even though it's closed-source, it's still one of the most powerful
| web browsers out there, and each release comes with packages for every major
| distribution out there.
