Helmar Rudolph reports for Opera Software:

"The MacOS and the Linux programmers have been working together, and they both failed. As with the MacOS project, the Linux project is also being shifted..."

The Windows version of the Opera Internet browser recently won CNET's Best Product of 1998 award for Best Internet Software.

Porting of Opera to Linux is under the direction of Opera Software's Project Magic and has not been pre-funded. The developers have been contracted to develop the software on the speculation they may make money from it in the future.
