How to Rip a Cd

Did you know that ripping CD's is now part of Rhythmbox Wow! Life is getting to be too good with Ubuntu default install. So after you stick in your CD and start Rhythmbox you will see a CD like icon (shown in the picture in yellow) under the Devices folder.  After clicking you then decide if you want to rip all the tracks and if all blanks are filled in right. By default Rhythmbox uses Sound-Juicer 160kbits/s and ogg format.  The file is then stored in your Music folder under Artist and then Album.  Previous to Ubuntu 10.04 we had to do ripping in grip.  This is nice, but I find that clicking on Jamendo and then download is the easiest way to get the best music out there.
