Benchmarks A lot was said lately about the Vorbis/Theora vs h.264/AAC situation on the draft of the HTML5. As some of you know, video is my main hobby these days (I care not about operating systems anymore), so I have gain some experience on the field lately, and at the same time this has made me more demanding about video quality. Read on for a head to head test: OGG Theora/Vorbis vs MP4 h.264/AAC. Yup, with videos. And pictures.

I'd love to see a change in the approach to patents; sure, I can understand that the companies which spent R&D developing the technology behind it, want to be paid, but the same time, it stifles the movement forward of internet technology.

I've floated this idea before; why don't they allow open source software projects to ship binaries of the implementation? or even a limited version - say, those who hold the h264 video patents give individual exceptions, "opensource web browsers implementing h264" etc. etc.
