ick, that sucks.  especially since the is the latest response i've gotten from
Opera in regards to a NetBSD port.

I don't even think our developers know right now. We do want to make Opera
accessible to as many people as possible, but there are certain projects we need
to finish first.                                                              

that sounds like a big fat, "no, now go away" to me.

good luck, it's hard enough to get IE for Solaris to run under Solaris, i don't
know what you should expect under NetBSD. :)

you have netscape?  then you already have a /usr/local/aol why not add MS to
the mix. *evil grin*


ps: i've seen some really dirty computers.  but this DEC 3000/700 has just won
the award as being the dirties computer i've ever owned.  holy crap, what did
they do? sit it next to a coal mine?
