Intel One name was conspicuously absent from the list of companies backing Google's WebM project and the VP8 codec. Despite other chip makers and designers being on the list, like AMD, NVIDIA, ARM, and Qualcomm, Intel didn't make an appearance. Yesterday, the company made its first careful commitment to the WebM project.

No, everyone knew that on the technical front Theora was inferior than h.264. The main "virtue" of Theora is its openness and the fact that it doesn't put your rear end up to sale to the MPEG-LA. WebM and VP8 bring the same "virtue" but are also technically stronger, making it a better alternative at the moment.

Or maybe this is just flamebait and I shouldn't have answered.
