Excuse you me, but you seem to defy the logic of technology.
Apple was started from a freaking garage.
Google used commodity hardware.
Look at both companies now.
Now why cant one codec be more popular than the other.
In this case, Its just a popularity contest.
What do i mean by that? Well look at the current trend.
The most visited site in the interwed is facebook.
