I have Fedora Core 2 and I use Opera 7.54. I'm wondering... is there any way to remove the banner ad in the top right corner? If so, how can I do it?
Cheator
You have to pay for it do you not?
mchnhed
no... i believe that's why it's open source is it not?

I dont think iOpera IS open source...

Just freeware

It would be best just to buy it IMHO due to the fact that you or your freind *might* mess up somthing that the program needs to funtion correctly or at all and then you'd just have to uninstall it anyway.

but not only that, *Cracking* programs for the express purpose of not having to buy it or access it's Locked features is just Plain wrong and has no place in an open source Environment. it just serves to give open source community a bad Reputation and the mind set that "OSS have to steal just to remain active and usful ?". which is not true i am sorry to be so bitchy.
but i grow tired of every where i go on the internet script kiddies and warez junkies are constantly asking how and where to get information on stealing linux products that are not open source !, open source means free to use and modify yes, but there are products that are sold to linux users and are not open source just like in the world of windows and it is equally unjustifiable to steal from them as well ! and besides all the stealing that people due serves to do just two things:

1.make it harder for legit users to get support without having to jumpthrough a tons of hoops (Secure Rom any one ?)

2.raise the price of the next version of the software to compensate for the loss of money sustained on the first version.

so in short just buy it !, it ain't gonna kill ya !, after all you got the OS for free !

Have a great day

I've been using Opera for 3 years now and you do have to buy it to remove the banner ad. Sometimes they have a deal where you can get a Windows and a Linux version for less than buying 2, in the event you have a dual boot OS. Opera is by far the best browser out there and it's worth the $40. The online support is superb, unlike Mozilla.
