    Oh dear; gnu is at it again.

    This is the perfect example of how not to do it; promoting a free audio format by suggesting to users that they .... download an entirely new media player.

    iTunes users won't give up iTunes just for a codec. WMP users won't give up WMP just for a codec. And in fact there are ways to get Ogg into those players; but what do GNU do? Push their agenda further, instead of helping users do what they would want.

    (of course I blogged this)
