Something from the past.
Back in 2011, Jon S. von Tetzchner, the founder of Opera Software has left the company. Although not a lot of details were revealed, Jon stated that he, the Board and Management no longer shared the same values.
Well, during that time, one of our readers wrote an interesting comment, which is as valid as ever before, Rogir said:
Looks like Opera Software is about to disappear.
That is, it’s going to become part of a bigger company.
Jon never wanted to sell Opera. In 2007, he “fired” the board over differences, probably over acquisitions.
Now the board might want to sell Opera, but Jon doesn’t want that. Hence, he leaves (maybe in protest) because he never wanted Opera to be sold to someone else
What do you guys think? Another coincidence or is this exactly why Jon left the company?
