The whole point is NOT to have to install additional cruft on my system to expand ONE file.

No other software requires a proprietary format utility to expand the distributable.

Most developers trade a small savings in size for ubiquity. ZIP files can be expanded in Windows, MacOS and Linux without need to install a special program.

The replies in this thread are EXACTLY the user unfriendly replies I'm talking about.
