Well, I got my wife an MP3 player for Christmas. It came with the 'free'
MusicMatch JukeBox. Since, for various reasons, she runs Windows, I
installed it. We both agree that the advertsing has got to go, so I'd like
to know if anyone can recommend a Windows-compatible free (as in beer) MP3
tool - ripping and library management would be the primary required features.

both easily access the "audio-server". This model makes a bunch more sense
to me, particularly when you've already got (linux) PC attached to the A/V
system. While I had basic ripping working, I ran into a problem with
particular CD and never spend the time to fix it. Does anyone have any
recommendations for tools in this area? (It's been 3+ years since I touched
it. Surely someone has done this to a reasonable level.
