Hi, long time "listener," first time "caller."

My questions about Ogg and OGM are: Is there a difference other than the 
name? I understand why Windows oriented people would want different 
extensions. I also know that the first tools created for making OGM 
files were based on modifications of the original Ogg source code.  I'm 
wondering if the actual methods used by OGM creating tools have strayed 
off what is planed for the official Ogg methods? Will the containers and 
their standards be identical, compatible, or incompatible?
