I do a fair amount of "customization" on every build I install.
Therefore the fact that current Opera versions for example want to
install something in /etc is no obstacle for me - I just "lump" that
requirement with the other "system modifications" I apply (e.g.,
putting something in /etc to support 'rsync' between XOs)). [I also
install the Adobe Flash-10 player onto all the Browsers my XO has.]
In any case, I have for a long time been running Opera (currently
9.60) on (F9-based) 8.2 and on (F10-based) Joyride. I launch Opera
from its icon in Home view. I do not need to disable Rainbow in
order to run Opera.
