DVD Shrink, DVD Decrypter, and AnyDVD (Slysoft) once again took the first three spots in our poll, retaining their rankings from Last Year's Poll , although their percentages did drop a bit. Amazing that two free programs out of development for years still perform so well. CloneDVD 2(Slysoft), DVDFab, RipIt4Me and Nero 8 Ultra/Nero Recode also made good showings.
On the Linux side it was K3b, K9Copy, and dvd::rip leading the way, and the Mac users chose HandBrake and MacTheRipper as their top two.
In other results of note, 55 voters (7.8%) said they backup to single-layer DVD, 23 voters (3.2%) backup to hard disk, and 18 (2.5%) use dual-layer disks.
Only two people said they backup to HD DVD, and only one for Blu-Ray. The plain old DVD isn't quite dead yet.
46 voters (6.5%) said they used more than one program to rip, process and burn.
Even with 44 choices listed, 23 voters (3.2%) still said they used a program not listed. Their comments in the body of the poll should offer even more options for those interested. The most-often mentioned 'other' program was DVD Rebuilder.
Only 13 voters (1.8%) this year chose "What's A DVD?", down from 21 last year.
And finally, 299 members cast 707 total votes, and we thank each and every one for their participation. Your input makes this forum, and this site, unique.
