Compression Performance: 7-Zip, MagicRAR, WinRAR, WinZip - Compression: Your Data, On A Diet

I found out that I could unzip and extract from the iso file with one running of 7-Zip. Here's how it worked: With 7-Zip installed on my laptop, I right clicked on the first of the Solaris iso.zip files. I then: selected 7-Zip -> Open Archive to open the iso.tar file double-clicked on the iso file opened the Solaris_10 folder opened the Product folder and looked through the package folders (e.g., SUNWfbc, SUNWfchba and so on) until I found the one I needed. Now that's a handy tool! For zip and gzip files, 7-Zip's compression ration is said to be 2-10% better than what is provided by PKZip and WinZip. It also offers AES-256 encryption for 7z and ZIP formats should you need it. 7-Zip works in Windows 98, ME, NT, 200, XP (I use XP Professional) and Vista. It was a 2007 winner in the SourceForge.net Community Choice Awards for both Best Project and Best Technical Design.
