4:3 makes no sense to me???

A friend of mine knows that I am saving up for a new camera, and he offered me to get an Olympus for a bargain.

I generally never considered Olympus, but I am trying to think through this idea, as he is in the business and he could really help me out.

There is just one silly question that I would like to ask. How does the 4:3 format compare to the 1,6 crop factor of Canon's SLR's? I went to a shop on the weekend to try out the E300 with 14mm lens, mainly to make out a diference in the wide angle capability. But I couldn't really tell.
Do you know more?
Thanks for your help!!
