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?

Lenovo G50 & CentOS 7.2 MATE - Fairly solid

Is there a perfect track record for any which distro? No. Do any two desktop environments ever behave the same? No. Is there anything really good and cool about the MATE offering? Yes, definitely. It's not the finest, but it's definitely quite all right. You do get very decent hardware support, adequate battery life and good performance, smartphone and media support is top notch, and your applications will all run happily. On the other hand, you will struggle with Samba and Bluetooth, and there are some odd issues here and there. I think the Gnome and Xfce offerings are better, but MATE is not to be dissed as a useless relic. Far from it, this is definitely an option you ought to consider if you're into less-than-mainstream desktops, and you happen to like CentOS. To sum it all up, another goodie in the growing arsenal of CentOS fun facts. Enjoy. Read more
