I'm not sure who you are complaining to or about.  As far as I am aware,
WMP plays Oggs (whether video or audio) just fine.  We haven't neglected
anyone.  Or are you saying DirectShow plugins don't work for most people
for some reason?

A lot of people who want fancy behavior are upset that they may need to
do something special, and this is true on every OS.

If anyone is being neglected, it's the OS X users who still don't have
any good solutions, and to those users, I offer our apologies.  We just
can't seem to get the help we need from Apple on this.
