They really should use 7-Zip for their .ZIP archives (or "advzip -z4" from AdvanceComp). It would save them > 1 MB of download size. And if you think that's not enough (times a billion downloaders), a simple .7z archive is much smaller (liveCD is 19 MB for -mx=1, 14 MB for -mx=9). I reported this all to them in IRC a few weeks ago, but I guess everyone doesn't mind such "minimal" time and bandwidth loss. Hey, whatever, their call. ;)
