Yes. This is exactly my reasoning. I'm about to pick up a 160GB drive and do
You can store roughly 320 CDs in FLAC format on a 160GB drive. I have more
than that, but I don't necessarily need them all ripped. Also, having the
FLACs around makes it easy to cut MP3s at specific bitrates when you want to
make files that are compatible with your portable MP3 player, etc.
It would be super-cool if Oggenc could take FLAC files as input, though.
The only real drawback to FLAC is that the tagging is awful.

I bought a 160G drive, and now I just save everything as flac, and THEN
encode it to ogg. If I ever want to reencode my stuff, I can go back to
the original flac files, since they are lossless.
This approach costs about $0.70 per CD that can be stored on the disk.
Just about the same cost as a jewel case. Saves a lot of space though
for cramped quarters where it may not be practical to put up a little CD
rack to hold your collection of 1000 or more CD's.
I'm paranoid that Ogg might get better... I don't want to be stuck with
old ugly sounding ogg's when I could reencode them to be better
