    I want to find out which is better. I have one of them but it won't open a .zip file I have, saying it's invalid.
    No asking which one I have or posting which one you think is better, just vote at top.

    Why not state which one you happen to have?


    I myself prefer WinRar for opening and for the most part I like the compression and the speed that can be done with 7zip.

    never even heard of j-zip. 7 zip works well, and is a well supported multi platform format.

    7-Zip, because it's Open Source. [​IMG]

    I personally use WinRAR, but out of those two I'd choose 7-zip.

    why on earth do people like winRAR? 7z can open .rars, and .7z is a far better format.

    I just use file roller myself, it can open any format....

    What the hell is J-zip? I've never had anything that 7-zip couldn't handle, plus it's free and light on disc space.

    I would say that File Roller is my preferred GUI archiver of choice (Xarchiver is always bugging out on me [​IMG]), but I tend to just do things through the terminal anyway [​IMG]

    I once had something it couldn't handle, I think it was some stupid proprietary .sit file. (mac "stuffit" archive). although it was quite an old file.

    I prefer 7-zip, and i have also never heard of j-zip. 7-zip is great, i had it pretty early in its life. I love the open-source and cross-platform of it.
    ...
    I think i may have phrased that wrong.

    7-zip works fine for most formats
    Except for those multifile rars i think.

    I use winRAR (RAR) so I only use archive to RAR but I'd use 7-Zip
