Novell and Ximian "Someone just asked me whether, now that Novell's become buddies with Microsoft, I'll be turning away from Novell/SUSE as one of my favorite Linux distributions. My answer is no. I'm sticking with SUSE Linux on both my desktops and servers. Here's why."

Ehm, iPod work'ish; the problem with Linux companies is that they're unfocused; they seem to drift from project to project rather than just knuckling down and focusing on getting their 'selection' working and integration properly

Except I was talking about Creative there, not Linux companies.

Babe, 9.2 has been the audio standard for quite some time; I want CODEC 9.2 support; its the default in Media Player 9.0, 10.0 and 11.0

If that's true, then that support is native in MPlayer since months, so what are you talking about ?
It still does not remove the point that once a 9.3 is out, you will repeat the same thing.

Mp3 quality absolutely shit when it comes to variable compression rate

Yes, constant rate is better. Now remember I was talking about WMV.

I compress my music at 135-215kbps variable, and it is far superior to using mp3 varibale at 320kbps - instead of senselessly bashing Microsoft, how about accepting that maybe, *shock horror*, Microsoft has actually created a good product!

WMV is the worst codec available, now if you don't believe me, look at all the benchmarks on the net, they come with screenshots for trolls like you.
As for WMA, it has no interest as MP3 is the standard and WMA is patent encumbered. If I was to encode anything, I sure enough wouldn't use a patent encumbered format that can be removed under my feet at any time.
