You misunderstood me. (English is not my first language.)
No problem. It is also not my first language, so the misunderstanding might as well have taken place on my side.
BUT what I was trying to say is that Minimo is not (yet) an equivalent drop-in-and-forget replacement for Opera on the N800.
From some of the discussions it seems that people aren't exactly happy with Opera on the grounds of technology, either. So I am not entirely sure how the technological comparison would work out in the end. But this is somewhat besides the point: People who value their freedom high enough to allow for some inconvenience can choose to install a Free Software browser already. This to me is good enough to talk about "replacing" Opera.
And if enough people go down that road and also let Nokia know that they are unhappy about a proprietary browser on their tablets, maybe they will reconsider their default choice.
