Which ever codec gets used and is more popular/kills the other, it will have absolutely no bearing on us as users. Both codecs create a higher quality picture with less comparable bit rate. If Google bring out VP9 first, it'll have a good shot of being the main one, however, bringing out VP8 after a standard has been established was never going to work out. The cost of licensing was less than the work required to use a new codec, free or not.
