I'm a Mac user, but my understanding is that the .wav format is a
Windows native, lossless medium type, comparable to AIFF. The files
will be large because they're uncompressed, but any windows user will
be able to play them, as well as Mac users with Quicktime - and perhaps
other media players as well. So the answer is, yes, most people will be
able to hear them.

I must admit, you've expanded the plausible nullification of any
negative assessment from your original pre-emption "The neophyte does

That is a pretty convenient defense strategy, intentional or
otherwise, but if what you'd like is feedback on your music — the lack
of which, after a 7 month pre-natal period, bore your recent paroxysm —
you've effectively (at the very least potentially) removed the
legitimacy of any feedback you receive. That goes for positive as well
as negative feedback.
