    Windows 10 Pro 64 bit

    I had a couple of CDs where the reflective metal started getting holes 3 years after buying them(in the 80's).
    The reason behind putting my music on my HDD is I get bored listening to an album through, specially when I know it good. With an audio player one can organize the playlists by genre(blues, metal, punk, crossover and jazz) and set it to shuffle and play it Forrest Gump style( My momma always said, "Life Music is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." )

    Windows 8.1 Update 1

    I prefer FLAC over Wave for the following reasons:
    - Tagging (meta data)
    - Smaller files (but no quality loss due to lossless compression)

    So if you ask me I'd recommend FLAC. But if you don't intend to tag your audio files and storage space is not an issue Wave is just as good. And seriously, if you use Linux I really wonder why you want to use WMA which is a proprietary Microsoft codec.
