Another deal with Mandrake will follow:
Also, Opera said Germany's SuSE Linux AG will distribute Opera's Linux Web browser with its SuSE Linux 8.0 desktop software. Opera unveiled the news in one of a flurry of announcements this week as part of its "Linux Bonanza" publicity campaign.
A similar bundling deal will soon be announced for MandrakeSoft's Mandrake Linux, and talks with other Linux vendors are ongoing, said Dean Kakridas, vice president of desktop products at Opera.

Redflag Software Technologies Co., Ltd and Opera Software today announced a strategic announcement, and are looking forward to working together on embedded browser solutions for the Chinese market.
