Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
Opera Software ASA has announced that Opera's Linux versions
will be distributed with Mandrake Linux, made by MandrakeSoft.
This announcement follows yesterday's similar statement
regarding the release of Opera for Linux within the SuSE Linux
In the press release statement was this commentary from the
company: "As an alternative desktop operating system, Linux
suffered for a long time from lacking a state-of-the-art Web
browser," said Dean Kakridas, VP desktop products. "By focusing on
providing the very latest in browser technology to Linux users,
Opera has moved in and filled the void needed to make Linux a
technologically advanced and user-friendly operating system.
Opera's continuous insistence on a technology-centered strategy is
proving successful both among users and Linux distributors."
In a separate statement, the company also specified that the
version to be included in Mandrake and SuSE Linux will be the free,
ad-sponsored version of the browser client.
