Norwegian Software maker Opera Software released the second edition of its Composer browser-customization application for the Linux operating system and expanded its sales referral program to include Linux. The sales referral program lets ISPs (Internet service providers), schools, network administrators, businesses and other organizations earn as much as $100 per year in commissions for distributing personalized versions of Opera 6.0.

Opera will pay commissions monthly at 9 percent of sales. Those who want to participate in the program must e-mail Opera.
