The trunk builds (http://www.reactos.org/getbuilds) are in 7z. Its only the sourceforge stuff which is in zip format as this is still a more universal format.


I don't see the point of providing it in .ZIP format since .ZIP is much worse compression (even if ubiquitous). 7-Zip has gotten tons of popularity and is easily available (even on ReactOS!) and no huge memory drain, so it's not like it's a huge inconvenience for someone to download and use it. But hey, maybe they should offer both .7Z and .ZIP (like some projects do).
