So, Mac intel and PC intel are both little endian, I guess?

I am really new to mac.  I don't feel comfortable with it like I do Linux or 
even Windows.  They seem finicky with what they support if the software in any 
way relies on the core stuff, like quick time.  I know that the flac 
capabilities of VLC and Songbird don't rely at all on Quick Time so compliance 
may be an issue.

Then again, k3b (on Linux) and VLC/Songbird (on the mac) may just be more 
error tolerant, as you say.

I can work around this,  Just trying to understand the problem.
