He always ask you to pay for it... and you always ignore it. Forgive us WinRar.

As a windows user, I love this piece of software. I don't use any other unzipping software other than just this. Support for different file types and very speedy in its unzipping, of course depending on the file size.

I like the checksum and recovery. Don't like the price.

I mean, they don't even force you to pay it, but OK.

Peazip is free and modern with more capabilities. WinRar.. I vaguely remember WinRar, but I know I've used it long ago. If you go with Peazip, be sure to go with latest.. makes default setting a lot easier. To be fair though, I understand that Peazip will only extract Rar.. not do the the compressing.. So.. if you have a real Rar compressing need, maybe WinZip is for you. Peazip will do other forms of compressing like Zip though.

WinRAR is a simple yet powerful application Competitors like 7zip do the same stuff and sometimes even better (compression and efficiency) The thing when comparing both is that they are essentially so similar that it's basically stupid to compare them. It all comes down to what you want, a nice and comfy interface (WinRAR) or a simple interface with more click and forget functionality (7zip)

I only use it because it's a meme software. There are many open source alternatives, but, hey, winrar have an Aladin icon theme. Does 7zip have that? I don't think so
