I still use EAC. I have an old old old NT4 box that I use
pretty much only for ripping and compiling FLAC win32 binaries.
as far as I know there is nothing that can really replace EAC
for secure ripping, open-source or not. I still have to
experiment with plextools.

on linux I think you can get the cuesheet with cdrtools somehow,
even with index points, but I still use EAC's.
