Opera, open-source, yadda yadda

Yeah, Opera Software is so open! Except for the browser Opera itself …

Sometimes I think free software/open-source “commitment” of companies whose main products are proprietary software only exists to polish their public image without actually helping open-source projects that much.

And the interview is disappointing me. This looks like this is part of a series on open-source commitment. But the interviewer has forgotten the most pressing question: Why is Opera itself not free open-source software, but just freeware? I really wanted to know the answer! :-( (talk)15:17, 7 January 2014
