The Opera Campus Crew has only been in action for almost two weeks, but wow... Talk about instant success! We have already received more than 230 applications (and accepted 212 which are now representing 191 universities in 34 countries). It's excellent to see how eager everyone is to get started spreading (and installing) Opera on their campuses!
Meet gefix, a Russian Campus Crew member, who has already managed to get Opera installed on 100 computers. Pretty cool, huh!?
For preparation he talked to the chief of department administration on installing Opera on computers in different terminals. He agreed and the work began on making a special distribution of Opera... When it was ready, they installed it on one faculty server, which then links students to it (user profiles), so they can access it on their local workstations! Simplicity and efficiency in a nutshell! They now only need to update one Opera version on the server.

However, the Campus Crew members are not the only ones distributing Opera in a larger scale. Kudos to suribe for his dedication on spreading the word about Opera wherever he travels. Just check out his photo album where he installed Opera on many computers which are to be used for medical research. Good stuff!
