Wow, what standards group are you talking about? the self appointed MSFT one?

Generally, when people talk 'standards' they mean more along the lines of IETF and other groups that actually release *open* standards that aren't non-free.

If the opera maintainers go dead (hit by truck or tragic accident or just a dot-com bubble popping) who will maintain security updates for this 'widely used' software, perchance?

HP has allways supported 'unix' on their printers, since they implemented the 'lpr' and 'tcp/ip' standards on their jetdirect cards, not to mention 'postscript'.
