My opera related comments were solely concerned with the fact that there's no simultaneous release of Opera on all the platforms it supports (opera for Linux is just out of beta now), the code isn't as cross platform as Mozilla's. In the short term this has lessened development time, but Mozilla aimed higher than that so it took longer.
Like I said in the post Opera does the small fast web browser role well enough that the people who don't like IE have a choice, Ultimately I like XP toolkit, I also like the fact it can be embedded into native applications (galeon, kmeleon, etc), why should the Mozilla team have written a small lightweight browser when there was one already out there, they've built a platform, it's took longer than many expected but I like the result.
I just hopw enough commercial projects adopt it too.
