This is why ppl don't move to linux: every music player on the f'n entire earth uses mp3, not vorbis, not wav, not name-it, but mp3.  So when are linux programmers such little bitch ass pansy f'n panywastes? Why not just enable the one everyone uses by default and why such frustration and agony just to do what we will do ANYWAY?

Till date I've not seen a distro in which soundkonverter doesnt convert 
to/from mp3. If you don't configure it to use ffmpeg, it'll use lame and 
it also supports various other programs.

Also note, for common users to use Linux/BSD, there should be an 
administration around for initial setup and completion of requirements, 
otherwise it's not possible.
All this after acknowledgment of mint/Ubuntu/OpenSuse/Mandriva etc.. 
etc.. etc...
