Free, fast, fairly easy to use
Like everything else out there, read the install screens before clicking so nothing you don't want will get installed.
I'm running Vista Home Premium (32-bit) - which is an excellent OS on new & powerful hardware. I've been using FreeRip MP3 for about 18 months and have no issues. It rips CD's to 320k quickly and the integration to the artist naming and song titles is perfect.
Maybe others have problems, but it does what it does well for me.
