10 General movement away from proprietary programs. I'm not completely free,

13 Also, That was back in the 7.x branch of Opera and I believe it was
14 available but looked like crap; or I was using a beta that wasn't
15 available for linux yet; or it was binary-only and I was installing Gentoo
16 (therefore wanted the advantages of compiling from source); or it just
17 didn't integrate with KDE (my desktop environment of choice) as well.
