iTunes and DAAP is Almost Nice

Why, oh why does Apple ignore open standards like Ogg Vorbis? iTunes is a very slick program for sharing music, especially once you get DAAP working properly on your linux box (I'm using mt-daapd right now), but even with a DAAP server that supports OGGs, and the OGG Quicktime Component, iTunes won't strream the files from the server correctly. It turns out as a jumbled mess. Of course, the G5 with it's optical-out to the stereo system we setup in the webroom plays this back faithfully :(

And we won't even get into how RHEL4 (and thus CentOS 4) doesn't include howl, despite saying that it does.
