One of my people has just asked me to capture a 20 second clip out of a dvd for him.

 

Rather than ripping the whole DVD and then editing out the clip I figure the easiest way would be just to do a screen capture.

 

Any recommendations on something I can do this with on Linux or Windows?

On Linux I use RecordMyDesktop, it's in Software Manager on my Ubuntu based Peppermint OS.

Should also work on Debian...

OBS works fine but it is a little complicated and time-cosuming for recording. One handy tool I use is a free screen recording application offered by ShowMore website. It allows me to capture any activity on my screen with an adjustable frame and video comes out in nice quality.

I found OBS a bit of a bummer to plug and play too. Ended up just adding a couple of libraries and use K3B to rip the vid, then edited the clip out.

"Video" suggests you want something like for screencast recording.  An easy-to-learn program is the downloadable edition from screencast-o-matic.com.  I have used it several times and its use is not too complicated.
