Um... what about asking refic about d/l stats?
We're open to such things, we've even talked many times about doing it with Inja, but in a way that's redundant because we can already get Erica

I care.

It's a step closer to removing unnecessary licensing costs. (see MP3).

What's with the sudden question? Something's wrong, or what?

FLAC for lossless and Ogg Vorbis for lossy are my preferred formats.

Please vote in the poll too, it looks kinda weird when there's more no then yes in the poll but more yes than no in the actual thread. :P

I like having all my music as MP3s if I can, too. I even took Shop Music.ogg and converted it to MP3 in Audacity. Now I can enjoyed it on my MP3 player (though I've never checked if it can take oggs tbh)

Maybe they're considering removing the OGG versions of the webography, which occupy a good chunk of their serverspace, while only a minority actually downloads them...

@topic: A rather tough choice, but I had to vote for "I don't care". I have no doubt that OGG is the better format, but my ears already have a hard time telling the difference between a high-bitrate MP3 and CD-Quality, and MP3 has the undeniable advantage that about each and every soft- and hardware supports it nowadays. So you could say I do care a bit about OGG, but not enough :-\

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.

Well I'm not sure what to vote. I do care about OGG, cause it's open so that's cool... but it's actually not very useful for me, since my portable MP3 player and my car stereo can only play MP3 and WMA.
So while I think OGG is cool, I don't use it at all.
