Opera - Debian.org
Dear Business Developer of Debian.org,
My name is Endre Steigum, and I am a business developer for Opera Software ASA. Opera makes a Web Browser for eight different operating systems: Windows,
BeOS, Mac, Linux, Solaris, OS/2, EPOC and QNX, for the desktop or embedded market.
On the basis of user surveys and reviews of Web sites, we would like to keep our access to your company's Web site from our directory of bookmarks for the Linux
operating system. If you want your Web page to remain on our bookmark list, please respond to the conditions put forth in this letter. The bookmark list will be small,
selective and very easy to use with approximately 150 links. This will make each individual link on the list highly visible to Opera's users.
The Opera bookmark list is included in every Opera download. After the release of the first free version of Opera in December 2000, more than four million users have
downloaded the browser and our downloads are increasing at a rate of 20,000 users every day.
You can choose to have your pages included in one of the following categories:
Business, Computer Software, Computer Hardware, Directories, Entertainment, Family, Fun & Games, Health, Leisure, Movies & TV, Music, News, Research, Science,
Shopping or Web Resources. Presently, your company's homepage is represented today in the Computer Software category of the bookmark list.
If you choose to keep your homepage on our list, you have several options: You can keep your link in the Computer folder, change folders, or place your link in several
folders of your choice.
To remain included in our bookmark list for a year, we ask you to place an Opera banner or button on your Web site in a highly visible spot, preferably on the front page.
It should be linked to http://www.opera.com/download. Please see http://www.opera.com/promote for examples.
Additionally, we can place your Web site at the top of bookmark list for a yearly fee. Our user surveys and hit rates indicate that the majority of our users visit the Web
sites at the top of the bookmark list most frequently. By entering into the agreement today, your Web site can be placed in the most prominent spot on the bookmark list.
We have three positions of prominent spots, the first position for those who pay 1000 USD a year, the second position for those who pay 750 USD, and the third for
With more than 250 million impressions per month, Opera represents a lucrative market for

As a prospective advertiser on Opera, I would also like to inform you about the Opera Composer, (http://composer.opera.com), which is an online tool that lets you
import custom graphics and links to customize your very own version of the Opera Web Browser. Opera Composer may help you spread your message and brand
identity while offering even more access to your contents online.
