Well, the news isn't *quite* that bad. If you go to the Opera download
pages there is a version listed for Ubuntu, which downloads a debian
style package. I haven't tried installing it yet though, and can't off
the top of my head recall how to notify Synaptic of a local package.
I do know that I did install Opera on my previous (Warty) Ubuntu system
and it worked very well indeed.
