Flip answer: "Because they have good taste?"
(I prefer Debian etc., & I am pissed @ RH for obscuring the diffs btwn KDE & Gnome).

Serious answer: I will ask my RH/FC guru the next time I see him. Perhaps as soon as tonight @ our weekly workshop.

Anybody using Opera, and what do you think of it as a good stable browser?
I have had it with Firefox crashing. I will revisit Firefox at about version 25,
by then they may have it fixed from crashing. Firefox is the only application
that I have that crashes on FC4.
Is Opera worth the $34.00 for the full version.

Thanks
Jim

I have not had any issues. Have you had probelms with them inthe past? I had problems with the official packages but never the rpms for FC4. Maybe you could file a bug report and help make it better.
