Why audio recording on UBUNTU is of better quality?

Question by crazbaz: Why audio recording on UBUNTU is of better quality?
I have used the inbuilt sound recorders on both Windows and UBUNTU 8.10. I have noticed that recordings on UBUNTU are very crisp and without any system induced noise and almost of professional quality. On the contrary Windows introduces a lot of noise to the recordings. Does anyone know why this happens? I am guessing it has to do with the thousands of processes and applications that Windows runs in the background. Anybody?

I believe it has to do with the fact that Ubuntu saves the recording as an Ogg, while Windows saves it as a WAV.

The Ogg format delivers much better quality than WAV can ever dream of.
