[NPL] Opera for Linux

News Release

OPERA SOFTWARE AND TROLL TECH AGREE TO MAKE OPERA, THE POPULAR WEB BROWSER,
AVAILABLE ON THE SUCCESSFUL LINUX PLATFORM.

Oslo, Norway, - 2. March, 1999 - Troll Tech AS, producer of the Qt
cross-platform application framework and Opera Software AS, producer
of Opera,
the fastest and most user friendly Internet browser, today announced
a cooperative development effort to make Opera available on the
increasingly popular Linux platform. This initiative between the two
companies, Opera Software AS and Troll Tech AS, is taken to secure a
rapid offering of the Opera
web browser on the Linux platform.

The first prototype will be showcased this week at the Linux World Expo in San
Jose. The Linux version of Opera is based on Qt, Troll Tech's widely
used cross-platform application framework. Troll Tech started the
porting of the
user interface and the general framework three weeks ago, and has
already produced a working prototype. The development team consisted
of seven Troll
Tech engineers who ported the browser to Linux by replacing the source code
that uses Windows with source code that uses Qt. The core browser functionality
will now be ported to Linux by engineers from Opera Software.

"Opera customers have long wanted a Linux version. Through this initiative we
are happy to announce that a Linux version of Opera will be soon available "
said, Jon von Tetzchner, Managing Director of Opera Software AS. When
we started to work with Troll Tech three weeks ago, we did not expect
to see a
working browser on Linux so quickly. We are impressed by the performance of
the
Troll Tech team and the quality of their toolkit. We expect a first
Linux version to be released Q2 1999 ".

"Porting Opera to Linux is an interesting challenge for Troll Tech. The browser
- Opera, is known for being much faster and more compact than
Explorer or Netscape Navigator." said Haavard Nord, CEO of Troll Tech
AS.

Opera Software AS is a privately held software developer and producer, based in
Oslo, Norway. Its Internet browser - Opera - has since the launch in June 1996,
received international recognition from users and the industry press for its
speed and flexibility. Opera is an HTML browser (client) for use on
the Internet, within corporate Intranets and Extranets. Opera can be
tailored to suit Internet / Intranet, Service Providers (ISP), OEMs,
cable vendors, traditional tele-communication providers
and satellite communication companies. Further information is
available at http://www.operasoftware.com.

Troll Tech AS enables their customers to rapidly develop efficient,
maintainable, commercial-grade software by providing software
components, development tools, and technical support, contract and
consulting services.
Troll Tech's flagship product Qt is a cross-platform user interface framework.
It provides application developers with all the functionality needed to build
state-of-the-art graphical user interfaces. Qt is fully
object-oriented, easily extensible, and allows true component
programming. It is fully supported
on Windows 95/98/NT, Linux, Sun Solaris, HP-UX, Digital Unix, IBM AIX, SGI
IRIX and a wide range of other platforms. Since 1994, Qt has formed the basis
of hundreds of successful applications worldwide. Troll Tech is
located in Oslo, Norway. Further
