Fantastic archive manager.  
5.0
 
written almost 11 years ago

I first got a taste of 7-zip on windows, where it has been outfitted with explorer integration and a very functional GUI. It can handle some pretty intense operations (multi-gig archiving) where the built-in windows archiver craps out. I have since installed it on all of my Linux boxes and use it from the command line. It supports a great range of archive formats and is easy to use. I still use tar for making .tar.gz and .tar.bz2 archives out of habit, but 7zip has earned a permanent place on my unix toolchain.
One caveat: if you plan to use the native .7z format, make a tarball first if you want to preserve the permissions of your files.

Best Windows program ever

It's funny that the best Windows software is all coming from Russia. Just think about the Far-Manager and 7-Zip.

7-Zip has the best compression. And it's two-pane GUI and it's Windows shell-integration are perfect. Right-click folder foo and "Compress to foo.7z and email", anyone?

If there was an award for the ugliest Windows program with the least options and settings, I would certainly award it to 7-Zip. The only upside is that .7z compresses really well and that 7-Zip supports many formats for extraction.
