OT: on .ogg

Okay, so I went to the site and read up about .ogg.  Apparently,
its big selling point is that it is patentless, so artists needn't pay
"tribute money" to the .mp3 corporation to publish their work.  And Vorbis
claims the sound is just as good.  And it's free.

What will I do with my Cakewalk, then, and my other files that "rip" into
.mp3 format?  I've just barely gotten started with Cakewalk.  :(
