My hope is that Opus will find broad adoption eventually. It is not just an open codec with a great free implementation (in floating- and fixed-point variants), it is also part of the official IETF WebRTC standard. Microsoft was part of the development team (via Skype) and Opus showed to be better than Vorbis, MP3 and AAC in listening tests most of the time. It is said to be the best low bitrate and the best high bitrate lossy codec all in one (well, it does consist of two sub-codecs).

I hope opus support will come as an update to IE 10 (and thus also to Windows 7). But if not I think it should at least be supported by IE 11.
