Can't even un-archive it...

Am I the only one who's unable to even open the .7z archive on a Mac? All I'm getting from 7zX is "Can not open file as archive".

Why did they choose this strange format, and did nobody think of testing it? It does not make a good first impression.

Extracted without a problem.

I assume you did read this before downloading:

users of Linux and MacOS please rename the filename extension from .7z.exe to .7z before extraction.

.7z is now a well known and popular format, and it works even on niche OSes like MorphOS and AROS itself. I can't believe you can't extract it on a Mac. Have you - at least - renamed the Live! distribution file from .7z.exe to .7z alone?
