Opera: It's everywhere you want to be (but can't)

Opera on OLPC
It's a busy week for the folks over at Opera. Not only did version 9.10 of the browser come out, but it turns out that Opera for the Nintendo Wii will be available for download on Friday, and we now have confirmation that Opera runs on the OLPC. Although Nicholas Negroponte and friends apparently don't want to include Opera standard on the OLPC because it's not open-source (although it does use open standards). Opera developer Håkon Wium Lie says he was able to easily pull up a terminal, download the statically linked rpm package of Opera 9.10 and install it on the computer. The only major bug seems to be that the machine freezes when visiting websites that make liberal use of JavaScript.

So to recap, Opera is or will be available for Windows, Linux, Mac, and other operating systems including BeOS and FreeBSD. It runs on mobile phones and Windows Mobile PDAs. And now it will run on the OLPC (which odds are you'll never get your hands on), and the Nintendo Wii (which you'll probably have a hard time getting your hands on until after the holidays).
