Interviews

Today we released the first beta version of Evenes for Linux and FreeBSD. If you've been waiting Opera 10.5 to stabilize before trying it on your Linux or FreeBSD system, now is your chance.

Opera Talks grabbed Arjan van Leeuwen for a brief talk about Opera Linux development. Find out why the Linux version was delayed, what new features we can expect and get some insights into Opera Development!

Choose Opera: Hi there Arjan, could you please tell us a bit about yourself and what you do at Opera?

Arjan: Hi there! I work as a developer in Opera's desktop team, and have been doing that since 2006. I'm originally from the Netherlands, but after finishing my studies I moved to Oslo to join Opera. At the end of 2008 I moved to our office in Linköping, Sweden. I am currently leading the effort to bring Opera 10.5x to Linux and other Unix-like systems.

Choose Opera: You have been in Opera for a few years now, care to share some of your best experiences?
