Can you provide more details.  I tried to find the Opera license on, but didn't have much luck.  But I don't see how it could fit 
the FSF definition of "free software" if it doesn't make the source code 
available, which is the main point of "open source".

P.S. I've put back the cross-posting, since you set Followup-to to a 
group I don't read, and I would never have seen your reply!
