Why would you use winrar when you have 7-zip, peazip and other totally free great performing arching guis or newer ones like nanozip with amazing compression raitos.
While I have not used Winzip in a while, the last time I did use it was to make a self extracting archive. Also, some people just like it, for whatever reason...like my Grandma who also can't let go of AOL's software even though she hasn't had AOL in years.
i think you all misunderstood the purpose of WinZip for the demo here. The Arrandale is showcasing here it's new AES-NI instructions which is used in the WinZip with encryption demo. If you use WinzIP or any other program that does some encryption, you will see performance drops.
How about the audience? Was there an audience or the clapping was recorded.
Who in this day and age claps after seeing a file been zipped, WOW, were they getting pay?
Maybe those people never saw a computer before. What a bunch of pansies.
