Ubuntu Makes Opera 9 available for easy download and installation
After the launch of Ubuntu 6.06 LTS, Canonical is pleased to announce the availability of Opera 9 for Ubuntu. With just a few clicks of the mouse, all Ubuntu users can download and install the latest version of the Opera browser, which was released to critical acclaim on June 20.
With its innovative technology and ease of use, Opera is a perfect match for Ubuntu. The two organizations have similar beliefs and values that are woven into their products.
“Opera 9 provides the most advanced browsing experience on Linux today,” said Håkon Wium Lie, CTO, Opera Software and long-time Ubuntu user. “We’ve had a Linux browser for a long time, but Opera 9 includes new optimizations specifically for the platform. I think Ubuntu users will like how easy it is to install Opera. It gives me yet another reason to love Ubuntu.”
“As a part of our programme to deliver a choice of the very best applications available, we have worked closely with the Opera team, and are able to make the very latest version immediately,” said Malcolm Yates, Partner and ISV Manager at Canonical Ltd. “With a few easy clicks from the Ubuntu desktop, all Ubuntu 6.06 LTS users can install Opera 9.”
By using the Ubuntu Add / Remove Programs feature, users can choose to install a wide variety of applications. This announcement continues the drive to ensure Ubuntu gives real choice and real flexibility as well as an easy to use interface that everyone can use.
