Linux An ex-Microsoft employee is arguing that Linux is ready for the primetime and that only thing keeping it away is the number of bugs it has. He claims that if these few high-importance bugs are fixed one way or another, Linux can become a dominant power in the desktop OS world.

Sorry, Vorbis is actually much BETTER quality. If your brother in law was having quality issues, it is likely because he was using fixed bitrate encoding. If you use VBR and just set a quality level, at the same filesize, the Vorbis audio is much better.

I worked for years as a professional live and recording audio engineer. I have studio mixdown monitors for computer speakers, and a recording studio in my basement.

I am not doubting that he had quality issues, I just think that it was due to settings used, and not the codec itself.
