    I use a program called Power Archiver. You can google that. It works like WinZIP, but has more features.

    I take it you don't like Windows.

    What do you see most people using at home? Windows. What do you see people using at your Bank, office, etc? Windows, mostly. Most people know the Windows GUI and are used to it - it isn't crappy, it may not be as stable as OSX or Linux, but people like it, that's why they use it. Live with it.

    Anyway, PowerArchiver is an awesome program you could use for Windows. For Linux, you can use the tar command.

    You aren't limited to just gzipped tar balls, you can also do "unzip file.zip".

    I'm using UnixUtils with Windows : native Win32 ports of some GNU utilities (natives means with no emulation layer like Cygwin).

    It had tar, gzip and a lot of others useful command like wget...

    And btw, you can have a whois command too here

    Thanks,
    David.
