> > My name is Anna Rajsman and I am working in Opera Software. Hallo Anna. Sorry for the rudeness you will get from many of the users on here. I have been using Opera on *nix for nearly a decade now and unlike our flamers, I understand all Opera *nix distro's fall under the Linux subgroup at Opera ... whether this is linux, freebsd, or solaris.
> Recently I > > took over Linux distribution at Opera Good deal. A short piece of advice for you is to quickly realize *nix is not monolithic like Microsoft software and Linux / Solaris / *BSD are entirely separate (though similar is some respects) operating systems and not subsets of each other. Many of the more vocal users (who often represent the minority of total users) will immediately tune you out or not give you the time of day for you failing to realize this as they perceive it as an insult. It basically shows you didn't take 30 seconds and google to do you homework. Its like calling a Porsche a BMW because both are European manufactured cars. > and I have been going through > > the distribution agreements we have with Linux providers and I > > haven't found any with FreeBSD Linux.

Many folk will question the need for this and to be honest, I am not sure if Opera is currently already distributed on the FreeBSD port disc (basically 3rd party application cd). The PROPER people to contact concerning this though are the folk over at the FBSD Foundation who control the legalities. See: http://www.freebsdfoundation.org/ Last just to warn you, you will find many FBSD Opera users are hostile to Opera itself. Opera has long ignored FBSD specific problem with their software in favor of focusing on Linux development only. See Opera's own FreeBSD forum. Basically if the problem affects Linux and FBSD its fixed, if it effects FBSD only its put on the back burner. This "use my product while we ignore your issues" has made many of us current (and former) Opera users on FBSD embittered towards your org. We like your product, we despise your treatment of us. -Peter _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
