also, if you're debating whether or not you should go to ogg, i highly
reccommend it.  first of all, it's a free codec, and many people don't
know that mp3 actually isn't free.  secondly, it's a _better_ codec,
with better audio quality in less disk space, among other reasons.

It also means you're not supporting the commercial minidisc/MP3player
axis. This is a Good Thing, because it makes it more likely that
Moore's Law will kill off this whole horrid, horrid, horrid
lossy-audio-compression idea before it gets to the point of being
impossible to buy a supposedly full-rate CD that hasn't been munged by
some horrid lossy codec at some stage in its production. I fear this
will be a close-run thing, and soon.


Ummm, you do realize that ogg is lossy as well, right?
