Can someone fill me in. Did the people behind .rar actually successfully cuck Microsoft ?

You need their program to use it. It isnt in the shell like .zip. Also just werks on debian since forevor.

Do you pay for winrar anon? I wouldn't call it cucking. If anything, they are the ones getting fucked. Just like Sony stealing from the BSD cucks.

>> No.67084194


Microsoft just doesn't care, anon. There are tons of compression systems, Microsoft is content to let just anyone fill the void.

Anything where business people can figure out a tool to do every day stuff, Microsoft decides not to do anything. Normies discovered winrar? Then Microsoft is content. That means other compressions software can chase every compression algorithm from now on and Microsoft can continue to do nothing.

I tested them a few months ago. Winrar is faster, but paid. 7zip has better compression and is free.
Overall, most of the time, speed difference is negligible because I don't really pack HUEG amounts of data, so I stick with 7zip

It's funny how retarded freetards are. All they do is google some old RAR vs 7Z benchmark. In reality RAR5 is on par with 7z but where they really differ is in speed. It's not even funny how much faster RAR is being extracted. In addition, 7z doesn't have the ability to add recovery records, which is beyond retarded.

That's not true. I believe it was rar5 which proved to be far superior to 7zip for compressing certain types of file formats. The main people who cared about it where people who released game torrents.

I got back to Windows since I wanted to play VR gayms. First went with 7-zip but it was painful to use so I tried winrar which turned out to be super comfy and designed for actual users.

I'll probably buy it when the trial runs out.

WinRar doesn't support 7-Zipped files in it's free/non-paid form.
7-Zip supports WinRar files in it's free form right from the get go. And 100500+ more formats.

Freeware/trial version of WinRAR can't unzip .7zip extension files. At least it was like that in mid-2000s, dunno how it's right now (haven't used anything other than 7-Zip for a long time now).

Having an extra set of par files is messy and prone to user error. .rar embed the parity file in the archive, which is much cleaner. Also, if you split the archive it's even sexier to have the parity embedded, then you can perform a recovery even if some parts are missing or corrupt without having to deal with locating matching parity files.

And you can encrypt it as well, and it's all self-contained.

WinRar is sexy.

It can. Why do you retards act like it’s hard to crack winrar? The key has been the same for years, you literally just copy paste “rarreg.key” in the directory and it just werks. I’d rather have it completely void of paid shit but come on.

It depends on what your preferences are. I currently enjoy winrar. Back in the late 90's I used mostly winzip and 7zip but after years winzip turned into bloated crap and I did not like 7zips interface. Been using Winrar since 2003 I think.
