    7-zip is a lot better than winzip and maybe better than winrar!

    Its GUI looks a lot like winrar's so is very easy to use.

    Also 7-zip supports these formats: 001, 7z, arj, bz2, cap, capio, dep, gz, rar, rpm, tar, z and zip.

    Don't ask me what are these formats cuz i don't have a clue either about the most. rpm i though that was rounds per minute!
