Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

In the early 2000s I purchased an internet radio with wifi. It also had the capabilities to stream media from a computer with file sharing setup.
Long story short, It found my computer which had the samba server setup, but it could not find any media. All my music files were in ogg format. After. I converted a few ogg files to mp3, then my internet radio was able to see the mp3 files.
Ever since then, I reluctantly use the mp3 codec just to be on the safe side.
Is ogg part of the open formats like PNG, FLAC, and WebM. Also, why isn't oog widely adopted yet?
Don't under estimate ogg vorbis, though! In terms of quality, it's very good and very flexible, and it does frequently get shipped with video games. Recently, it's being used as an official part of the HTML5/webm spec (along with opus, another free audio format), which is the main driver of youtube videos.
