7-Zip is better than WinZip (IMHO). Why?
1. Free: Unlike WinZip, you can use it for free for either personal or business uses.
2. Open-Source: It is free to use, distribute, and modify.
3. Linux: There are distributions available for Linux.
4. 7z: 7z is a new archive format, with high compression rate, AES-256 security, and open architecture.
There are also other reasons why I prefer it to WinZip, but these are just a few.
