Opera Web Browser

I recently was looking to see if the web browser Opera was available for 
Linux.  Well, when looking at their site I discovered that they are currently 
doing a poll of sorts to see how many Linux users (along with some other OSs) 
would be interested in their browser.  They have pledged that if they have 
3000 Linux people interested by the end of November (when the poll closes) 
that they will start working on developement.

I don't know how many of you have used Opera in Windows, but it is great.  
Opera is a <1 MB binary which had many of the fancy features of Netscape and 
IE4 without the overhead weight.  It is quite nice.  Plus, back in my older 
days of pre-linux, it was the only browser I could get to install in Win3.11 
with only an EGA monitor.  That is how cool they are!

Anyways, I wanted to encourage all my fellow Debian users to go to their page 
and respond.  I know it isn't 100% kosher Debian Free Software Guideline 
software, but it would nicely replace those other two web browsers (what were 
they called) on the linux desktop.
