I used Opera now and then for Windows.  I didn't even think about it for Linux.  Glad to know that it works with Linux..

I don't have a ton of experience with apt, but dnf is pretty simple especially for the basic stuff  you will be using it for 99% of the time. For people used to yum (which is what it's a fork of) it's easy to go from yum to dnf. The command  options are all the same (or mostly anyway) and one simply replaces the 'yum' command with dnf. 

Fedora has a few minor quirks but none of them are close to show-stoppers for me and I've been real happy with it on my laptop.

Wonder why RH has stuck with yum. Seems dnf is tested and true.

I'm pretty sure they are slated to have it in RHEL 8. When RHEL 7 was released it wasn't close to production ready yet. Last I checked they were still behind on some features but nothing major and I'm guessing most of those have been addressed by now.
