Just trying to figure out why OGG seems to be a non-issue among people I 
interact with regularly, but a big issue for some others.  It was just a 
hunch that it might be another difference in media formats between here 
and there (which do happen every so often).

Choice is good.  But "wanting one more media" is different from trashing 
one (popular) media format with rant inducing requests for another one. 
  Especially when I'm not aware of any real media source that only uses 
OGG (thus making the only way to access their content being "support 
OGG").  So I was just asking why I would want to support OGG at the 
expense of AAC.
