The cool thing is that Opera (and Google Chrome) setup the repo for
you if you download and install the .deb.  Teaching people how to edit
their software sources is probably useful, but in this case, probably
not necessary, as the end result (browser installed, updates received)
is the same.


" ... the original aphorism being 'In comparison with the ancients, we
stand like dwarfs on the shoulders of giants.' The image was a
commonplace by the time Newton used it, his one contribution being to
erase any sense that he himself might be a dwarf."
