Well, it's good to know that there is
a ripper on Linux that can produce single-file FLACs with embedded cuesheets.
Now, if only it were actually usable!
OK, I'm being sarcastic. I've used abcde before, but command line tools for this sort of thing aren't my idea of fun -I was really referring to a ripper on Linux with a nice GUI frontend. Also, I never did work out how to edit the CDDB information extensively using this tool before
ripping (Foobar2000 has no problems in that regard) -it's almost always wrong for classical music, so ease of getting the ID3 tags correct prior to the rip taking place is really important to me.
And then it's the familiarity thing: I've known Foobar2000 for years; abcde not so much.
