"Vorbis is the best lossy audio codec" - Do you have data to back up this
assertion? I am not an expert here, I had the naïve assumption that AAC was
better given that major devices (e.g. iPod) use this format over Vorbis. I
would love to see some data (other than some studies from 2005 on some forum
that Wikipedia links to).
"Widely adopted ... in portable media players?" Really? iPod? Zune?
