RE: 7-Zip

My only problem is the developers insistence on using a proprietary compression method on their files.

I just don't want to install 7-Zip just to de-crypt one file. Complaints to the developers go unheeded.

There's a reason everyone used ZIP compression. It's a standard, and widely supported. 7z files aren't.

The developers of AROS are more interested in forcing their compression program preference on users than providing something that user can use. There really isn't a reason to compress .iso files anyway.

You want to download and use en entirely new experimental operating system, yet complain about having to install 7-zip?
