I understand your dedication to Linux which is obviously an excellent OS
for certain applications, but if you were a serious audiophile, you would
be as dedicated to finding and using the best ripping program as you are to

I may be wrong, but it appears that you are more dedicated to Linux than
you are to having high quality mp3's, so this discussion with you is
misplaced. I started this topic to speak to audiophiles, not Linux-only
computer users who happen to enjoy music as a sideline.

[humor] Just out of curiosity, if you update your Archos Hard Drive, how
will you format it as Win32 if all things windows must be avoided? [/humor]
