7-Zip's LZMA (7z) format is slower than all its competitors.

7-Zip is open source compression software which lacks icons. This old school software is written in machine code using a calculator, so it's known to be better than everything written in the whole universe.

Why not WinRAR?[edit]

7zip lacks everything WinRAR has when it comes to GUI. The icons of the files supported by 7-Zip are also designed in machine language, so they are light and fast, even though the actual compression operations are slower than most of the other competitors.

Supported Formats[edit]

7-Zip supports 7z, XZ, BZIP2, GZIP, TAR, ZIP and WIM packing and ARJ, CAB, CHM, CPIO, CramFS, DONGS, DEB, FAGGOT, DMG, FAT, HFS, ISO, LZH, DICK, LZMA, LOL, MBR, MSI, CUNT, NSIS, ROFL, NTFS, RAR, HURR, RPM, DURR, SquashFS, UDF, VHD, ASS, WIM, SHIT, XAR and Z. unpacking.

Does this shit get shit done?[edit]

The main feature of 7-Zip is that 7z format has a better compression ratio (LZMA) than rars because some nerd has found a way to combine zip and rar algorithms. Ironically, 7zip has a better compression rate of zip files even better than winzip itself. Noone uses the 7z format anyway because no one has 7-Zip installed, except for some average ftp search engine users in Russia.
