my program of choice for listening to music on my PC from time to time and not to mention i use it for conversion of FLAC to MP3/AAC(.m4a) etc as all you need is the 'LAME v3.99.5' encoder for MP3 or for AAC i use Nero's encoder even thought it appears the iTunes AAC encoder stuff is a bit more tweaked than Nero at this point (especially for more of the lower bit rates) as it's been a while since Nero updated it's AAC encoder and my guess is they never will at this point. but MP3 is what i would mostly use anyways since once the bit rate is high enough (say roughly v2(190kbps VBR) mode using LAME) it's good enough for the vast majority of people (i.e. they can't tell the difference between the original source and the compressed audio file) and since MP3 is the most common/compatible lossy format it's what i would use in general if you want to play it safe.
