I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate (beta) <---It looks just like Vista.
There are so many better ways of using flac than with the bundled frontend. I would kick that program to the curb without a single thought.
Leathlobhair,For what reason do you want to use flac? If you just want better sounding audio files, you're probably wasting your time. High quality mp3 encoding sounds identical to the original cd. If you think your mp3s don't sound as good as the original cd, maybe they weren't encoded as well as they could have been or it could be your hardware. Or maybe you're just being misled by some of the widespread hype out there.
I do not think so. I have the same track in 320 kbps in mp3 and in flac and you can hear differences. For instance I did notice some dogs barking and a rooster in some tracks of Sting´s Songs from the Labyrinth.
this seems like a good place to lobby for a .deb package on flac's webpage for us ubuntu folk

a nice package (gui version) would be great wait is one up there somewhere? lol idk what all that stuff says XD keep in mind that retards use ubuntu nowadays too
i looked at synaptic and found the commandline tools, dont see gui
its not a "problem in theory" that more people would use a flac frontend on ubuntu if it was actually EASY to install on that OS.
thats good to know cpchan, and anyone that needs to get flac functioning on ubuntu will just clairvoyantly know to download those programs
