WMA's tend to be smaller, less compatable, and less quality iin my experiance...
Yes, you are right...in fact for an equal compression for both like 128 Kb/s the quality of WMA format result better then mp3, for having CD quality with mp3 u must set the bitrate around 128 Kb/s, with WMA u can set the bitrate 96Kb/s and u have the same result...after all with WMA format u have with a minor accupation the same quality of mp3... another thing that contribute to popularity of WMA format is that it's free while for MP3 u must pay some money for a part of code licensed by Fraunhofer/Thomson/RCA...but for me mp3 it's better! why? it's not a M4 product

personally i hate M$ products so i don't use wma and make my audio files with mp3 codecs
WMA's tend to be smaller, less compatable, and less quality iin my experiance.
and untill windows releases a 64bit ema codec, or the linux guys hack an open source wma codec, i cant listen to them on 64bit gentoo without having waste space installing a 32bit chroot envoronment (im having trouble cross compiling)

This is only applicable if you ripped your music off cds of course.
