If I understand things correctly, you should still be able to get your favourite mp3 decoder as source code (like with the lame encoder).
yea and how many windows users are gonna compile it themselves?
everybody is gonna switch to ogg now
They won't need to, I am sure that Microsoft will be more than happy to pay their 0.75 per download <joke>I wonder how many downloads it would take to bankrupt Microsoft?</joke>
Actually, if you read the licensing terms, all that is required is a one time fee of $90,000 to carry on using the format - I bet Billy has that in loose change down the back of his sofa.
Like flashingcurser said, mp3 is here to stay.
