Through the Opera Global Donations Program, Opera Software gives registered versions of Opera away for free to schools, kindergarten
through the 12th grade, organizations representing physically challenged, as well as Web designer schools, companies or organizations.

JM, this is good news! Where did you read it? This does not surprise me really, it is a good move on Opera's behalf. In fact it was even suggested here at WebmasterWorld:
|Just imagine if opera took the initiative and actively approached schools with "teach Web Standards with THE Web Standards compliant browser," pitch and offered "AD FREE" versions at no cost to schools teaching Web Standards, that could be worth more than virtually any advertising campaign! |

Thanks again jimbo_mac! This is good news for the advancement of Web Standards as well since there are still a number of schools using NN4 in the computer labs.
Combine a free version of Opera for schools with the upcoming (almost here) release of Mozilla 1.0 with the growing awareness of Web Standards coding, and NN4's days in the school environment will be decidedly in doubt.

To register, there's nothing in the drop down box for web designers. It seems to be for distribution, schools and a couple others. Did I miss something?
