This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I check the Opera Desktop Team blog almost daily and until they issued two release candidates (bug fixes of 12.1x) over the last couple of weeks there hadn't been much activity since February.
I've looked around Opera's site and didn't see any announcements, at least none that were easy to find, so I Googled "Opera" to find out, via a third party news source, they are apparently re-writing the browser from scratch using Webkit as the rendering engine.
Has anyone heard any further news on when the "New and Improved Open Source Opera" will be available?

Yeah, but can you trust google anymore than you can trust mickeysoft? I wouldn't trust either one of them any further than I could pick up one of their headquarters' buildings and throw it. Just look at the little scheme google has talked* adobe into with flash for Linux.
Opera is a for-profit company, and it should be assumed they will run their business in a way that optimizes their income stream. Google is the other big player in the unstable triad of Microsoft, Apple, and Google, and I don't see Opera becoming partners with either Apple or Microsoft.
I'm actually surprised they've been able to stay afloat. I used to LOVE their browser, but it's been like 4 years since I could even use it that it's performance has been so awful. Displays pages completely wrong, slow, just awful. The android version was even worse. Anything they do to start it from scratch is an improvement. However, using the same engine as Chrome kinda makes it redundant. Just use Chrome and install extensions to do what you want.
