I, like many, use the ogg vorbis encoder. This article in today's Guardian (UK) may be of interest. In summary the writer states that ogg is a music file format without support or hope. Any thoughts?

Any thoughts?


I just got my iAudio D2 smile.gif

Indeed, Ogg is still a long way behind other formats I left out, such as Real Audio and Sony's Atrac. These have millions of users, but now look doomed.


The difference being that Ogg is on its way up and Atrac and Real Audio are stagnant or going down.
