Hide Opera instead of exiting

Two minutes later, when I have something else to do on the Internet, I have to wait for Opera to start again.
Therefore I wanted Opera to just hide, when I click "close". This makes Opera reappear in a second and you can continue surfing, chatting or whatever.
The solution is very easy: Goto "opera:config#UserPrefs|ShowExitDialog" enter "2" in the highlighted text field, scroll down and click "save".
When you now close Opera, it will hide and come back, when you open it the way you always do it. But it is much faster.
To close Opera completely, look for the Opera icon next to your clock in the task bar, right click and choose "Exit". (Windows XP, Vista, 7)
Probably, this is not new to most Opera users. However, I am glad I found this option. Maybe someone else will consider it useful, too.
