Ogg Vorbis makes decoder for portable music players

Anonymous Reader writes - "Even though it is a license-free codec, Ogg Vorbis has not seen adoption yet in portable digital music players. The reason is because Ogg Vorbis required a floating-point processor to function, something missing in today's MP3 players. Yesterday, Ogg's creator Xiph has answered this issue with the release of their new fixed-point Vorbis decoder named 'Tremor.'"
