Ogg sucks
Authored by: jtrascap on Nov 04, '02 02:04:05AM

Part of it **is** that OGG is better in some ranges of the audio spectrum - this is what studies/reports have found over the years. (DISCLAIMER: I am a MacOSX and Solaris user, and have NO OGG files, plus I'm over 40 and my hearing is going. I don't care who's audio is best 'cause I can't hear it anyway. No flamewars please!)

The other part is that it's the favorite audio format of Linux folk, so if only for PR, it's excellent that OS X is supporting OGG. For some, not being able to move gigabytes of music to a new platform is just another excuse to not give in and go to OSX. Remove that reason, and the move looks a bit better.
