Ripping from CD(R)

Has anyone ever tested / proven whether ripping software is better than copying WAV files directly from a CDR? And when copying, does it matter which OS (Windows, Linux, MacOS) you're using?

In its most simplistic form, WAV files are 0s and 1s and copying them from CD(R) to hard drive will give the same array of 0s and 1s. I can only assume ripping software will interpret the music and convert something but I don't have the technical knowledge. In case of errors, I guess ripping software will attempt recovery, where copying files will just give an error?

Any info is much appreciated.
