LXer: Opera CEO on Open Standards vs Open Source

Published at LXer:

Opera Software's CEO Jon S. von Tetzchner explains why they will not release the Opera browser as open source, arguing that open standards are more important than open source: "I'm not convinced that it would help us as a company to go open source. We have not seen any way that would allow us to do that and at the same time continue to increase investment."

Well, I guess they are ignoring Firefox's resounding success...and the fact that Mozilla is not exactly short of cash...
