Nobody's using jpeg2000 because it's full of patent landmines. Nobody wants to be the first to get sued. Since the quality isn't THAT much better anyway, there's really no good reason to change.
Standards writers, let jpeg2000 be a lesson! If you don't spend enough time worrying about patents, all your work might be for naught.
Personally, I think jpeg2000 is DOA forever. I look forward to when png2000 gets developed though!
