Opera's first major Linux distribution deal:
[opera.com...]

Another deal with Mandrake will follow:

[pcworld.com...]

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.

Congradulations to Opera for the distro with some of the best linux os's. will it take the place of netscape if it ever existed on the installs?

Hey that's cool. The *nix version of Opera has been improving over the last year nicely.

>will it take the place of netscape if it ever existed on the installs?

I doubt it, I am sure it will be one of many browsers these distros will offer. The browser war is a lot more interesting on the *nix side.

The list goes on... does anyone feel the momentum building?

What I find just as interesting, perhaps even more, is Opera's incursion into the Asian market.

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.

Somehow I thing the impetus for Opera adoption will be virulent. Or not... It could go either way, though I suspect the reasons for Opera implemetation will be apparent.
