Yet another killer app that uses Vorbis: Spotify!

160kbps for the free service. 320 kbps for the premium one.

Of course Apple and microsoft, both being hellbent upon using
proprietary technologies and taking every single opportunity they have
to leverage any monopoly they have attained[1] will object to Vorbis.

The only way to fix this is to get Opera, Mozilla and Google to
implement it, and get a lot of content out on the web!

1. Last evidenced by Apple specifically shutting out Palm from iTunes,
for no technical reasons whatsoever.
