Recommend some DVD ripping software

So, I hate DVDs. Rather, I hate having a huge collection of discs. I watch all my movies on my PC, anyways, and I'd like to rip my collection to the half-terrabyte array I just installed. <3 cheap disk space.

What I'm looking for is some good ripping software for Windows. In the past, I've used Handbrake for OSX, and I really like it. It's simple, it's (reasonably) fast, and it outputs good quality files without any hassle. My G4 iBook isn't exactly a screaming fast machine, though. And I like to be able to take it with me to class, instead of sitting at home ripping a movie.

Everything I've seen for Windows, by comparison, has been some hideously complicated monstrosity. You have to use program A to decrypt the disk, then program B to rip the damned thing. Program B, buy the way, has more switches and buttons than the god damned space shuttle. Of course, all of this is after I had to install 400 different audio and video codecs.

I'm basically looking to pop in a disk, set a quality setting, set a codec, and let it rip the movie. I basically want Handbrake for Windows (yes, I know there technically is a Handbrake for Windows, but it's pre-alpha, and most of the features that do work are only accessible via command line). Is there such a thing?

    I don't know if this topic is legit or not, as you're asking about circumventing copyright protection.

    But anyway, check out FairUse Wizard, it's worked pretty well for me.

    You need something to rip to .VOB files first. I use DVD Decrypter.

    Super DVD Ripper is all you need. It's shareware, but worth the asking price.

    ...and I thought of how all those people died, and what a good death that is. That nobody can blame you for it, because everyone else died along with you, and it is the fault of none, save those who did the killing.
