7zip archives [Poll]

On the home page 7zip archives [Poll] it states
2) Con's
- Not supported by WinZip.

That is not quite true as WinZip does support the 7z file format.

I think that, perhaps, when the poll was done 7 zip wasn't supported - or at least maybe the version that most people had at the time didn't support them. However, it certainly supports them now but I think only for reading and extracting.

Well in that case - one less con - all the more the reason to start using them more regularly. :)

People still use Winzip? The world truly is a strange place... :mrgreen:
