Being a free software enthusiast, it was shame for myself keeping music files in a proprietary format like mp3. During some chat conversation with Shyam I recalled the thought. I never went for a second thought. Wrote a bash script and converted all my music files to ogg vorbis format :). Now I’m free.
Free as in Freedom
Ogg Vorbis is a free and open source replacement for mp3 music format. More than the freedom thought, I have found some more benefit. After conversion from mp3 to ogg, I freed some more disk space. ( 1.5 Gigs to 1.2 Gigs ) :)
