Non-pirates seldomly need .rar support.
clearly I'm going to need to update my resume - I've used both RAR and 7ZIP for years but never considered myself a pirate
I laboured with very limited resources for a very long time (when all my friends were buying 500G SATA drives I was still working with a 40G IDE drive, and I still only have a dialup internet connection) so the need for an efficient archiving tool was paramount.
They both offered (and still do) far superior performance and options to the existing ZIP solutions, without being so obscure that I can't share a file when I need to.
I don't run any sort of file sharing, I don't post or download pirated software,
yet somehow because I use a legitimate piece of software I am suddenly a pirate?
I somehow doubt it, and I for one consider those sort of statements to be purely inflammatory, ie your claims are unsubstantiated and contribute nothing
and if you can't offer constructive statements, why post them?
