I stumbled upon this Life Hacker Article, "The Five Best Ripping Tools" and DVDFab HD Decrypter made the top five! I know it's freeware, but our boys need some votes to make them number one.
Click here to go to the article, and please cast a vote for DVDFab while you are there.
PS You guys have one of the best programs I have ever used for ripping DVD's.. Especially, for the technically challenged -- like my wife!
