The nice people at WinX have let me know that they are having a giveaway for their newest software for the Mac OS X Platform. WinX DVD Ripper promises to rip all DVDs (including all the latest copy protections) to any output you could possibly think of. I only launched the software and quickly played around, but did not rip a DVD yet. I found it nice that they tried to keep it simple (Mac philosophy), yet gave the user full control, trust me that is hard to do since I come from an MIS major. Another really cool thing I liked was the ability to control the amount of CPUs to use for an operation. Since I have a four core Xeon processor, that might help out in the ripping speed. Only constructive critisisim I have at this point is to try and make the interface look more Mac like, while some people don’t care about this I think it would look nicer. Since it is still new, maybe they can incorporate that thought later down the line.
Now about the Giveaway. They are giving away the software free of charge to launch the software. This giveaway expires on May 1st, 2010 at 12:00GMT so grab it while you can.
Finally Here are two pictures.
