Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Opera for PCs now for free

Published: Tuesday 2005-09-20.

So, the offer didn't stop with one day of giving away free registration codes, today’s release of Opera 8.50 for Windows, Mac and Linux goes further: It removes the ad banner altogether and is freeware.

That’s right, no ads, no fee. It's still not free in the “free software” or “free as in speech” sense, but at least it is free in the “free as in beer” sense. And, as I noted, somewhat cryptically, in my post in my other blog, Opera 8.50 is available in Swedish at launch-time for both Windows and Mac. Unix language file will be made available, both unofficially and officially.

We at Opera Software are very excited at being able to present you with this version for free. We hope you enjoy using it as much as we enjoyed making it!
