Why MP3 is very much alive and well

Setting aside issues with the "___ is dead" articles, you may have seen the NPR and Engadget articles declaring the end of MP3. Even if you haven't, it's worth checking out the excellent response article:
"MP3 is supported by everything, everywhere, and is now patent-free. There has never been another audio format as widely supported as MP3, it’s good enough for almost anything, and now, over twenty years since it took the world by storm, it’s finally free."
Hell yeah.
