I could care less. MP3 is in general the all around format with only .wmv and the i-tunes formats coming up behind it. Thus having in my music in that format means that most devices and people can use it.

Personally, on my audio gear, LAME encoded MP3 @ 320Kbps sounds a lot better than any OGG I have ever heard. Much closer to the original (aka the flac version or original CD).

There's something just not right with the OGG sound, imho MP3 is better at high bit rates.

He mentions that the versions in that article are from 2001. It's pretty old by now. ;)

I care. But in the marching undead kind of way.
Just close your eyes and keep your mind wide open.

I'd care if my sound card's audio player, and my portable music player, supported ogg. Since they don't... *shrugs*
Your approval fills me with shame.

I agree with Kernel, I like that OGG exists. But if a track is offered in both MP3 and OGG, I only download the MP3.

sentence fixed. think about what words mean you silly american :P

Other than that, pretty much agree with Loki. I voted no, i keep most of my music collection in mp3, generally because i know that EVERY application and every mp3 player will support it, and i definitely don't want to go converting lossy formats when i find a stupid program that won't let me use oggs.

OGG is marginal format because it aint supported by all the mp3 players etc so it's kinda useless mp3 is efficient pretty much if its high quality ones. flac files would be the best but then again the size is a killer for that format because the amount of bandwith and hd space it takes.

I appreciate the effort building open source formats from scratch, but on the other hand MP3 is simply a de-facto industry standard. Just like Powerpoint, Word and Excel instead of Open Office formats.

... So,

assuming that those who really _don't_ care wouldn't bother answering this poll or even be attracted to read it based on the subject line, with the exception of course who actually punched in a "not me" vote, we've got at the moment of writing a number of 14 out of [n] fans who care about OGG.

It's a grim day for the OGG format. :)


It's my job to keep SID elite.

If you take away our precious OGG versions of the webography, I demand that FLAC versions replace them! ;D

ogg over mp3 any day. currently working on getting rid all of my mp3s, and replacing them with better files.

if you dont want ogg taking up space, why not upload it somewhere else?

and... i also share werevolvos dream.

It's a grim day for the OGG format. :)

The proper formula is

n = t-(i+o)

t = number of registered fans on the forums
i = inactive members
o = offline members at the moment
