From Linux.com: "Let's face it. MP3 is probably the most widely used format these days for distribution of
high-quality natural audio on the Internet. A number of applications are available to
encode and playback MP3 media, in the form of audio CD "rippers," WAV->MP3
converters, and a huge number of MP3 players, including hardware implementations.
Some people are even working on a standard for the MP3 CD."
