You mean there are people who don't use 7-Zip?

Most people don't know about 7-zip actually... still on WinRar, WinZip or *GASP* the built-in Windows decompresser/unzipper.

PeaZip and 7zip both have rar support with no restrictions.

Haha, no. RARLAB charges $30 for it. Everyone just downloads the trial and clicks past the "your trial has expired" dialog boxes forever. That doesn't mean it's free :)

Yes, I'm always amused when I see computers with eval versions of WinZIP and WinRAR installed, when they could avoid all those dialog boxes by using 7-Zip.

or by right clicking

The zip feature built into Windows sucks eggs for large archives. What will take the built in feature ten or more minutes to unpack 7-zip will do in ten seconds. I really don't understand the impetus for anyone to pay good money for an archive program anymore.
